Overview of Changes in SDAPS 1.1.7

The most important change in this release is that the import of image data has been simplified. SDAPS can now do an image format conversion automatically as part of the “add” command, removing the necessity of using “convert” or some other external method to preprocess the images. As before, this feature requires OpenCV. Another change is that SDAPS now imports PDF files directly. If a PDF file contains a full page image (i.e. a scanned document) then this image is used directly to prevent image quality loss due to resampling. This feature requires poppler to be installed. Overall these changes make it a lot easier to work with different scanners. It is now only neccessary to pass the “--convert” option to the “add” command to add files that are not already in the expected format.

Important changes:

  • stamp: Fix re-stamping all IDs
  • add: Implement conversion feature (--convert option)
  • convert: Add support for reading PDF files

New and updated languages:
