has announced the release of new versions of its PDF workflow-based products, Instant PDF 2.0, PitStop Professional 5.0 and PitStop Server 2.0. The new versions of these tools are available for download from Enfocus’ Web site.
Enfocus said that Instant PDF 2.0 merges Enfocus Certify PDF and EZ-PDF into a new product that is designed to complement and control Adobe’s Acrobat Distiller software. The software automatically overrides Distiller settings with output specs from any application — users then print, preflight, autocorrect and certify a PDF. It supports PDF and PDF/X. It’s available for US$249 or $49 when upgrading from Enfocus Certify PDF or EZ-PDF.
PitStop Professional 5.0 gains PDF profile and certification capabilities. The new version also sports the PDF Profile Editor, to create job-compliant PDF specs used throughout preflight, auto-correction and Distiller settings.
New functionality in PitStop Professional includes an expanded number of preflight fixes, which results in the ability to close 70 percent of all problems detected and preflight automatically, according to Enfocus. A redesigned user interface has been implemented, and there’s an improved feature set including transparency, PDF/X checks and corrections, and more. PitStop Professional 5.0 costs $549, or $99 for the upgrade from version 4.5. The upgrade from any previous version of PitStop is $199.
PitStop Server 2.0 has also been released. The software automates PDF workflow and also incorporates a new user interface for hot folder setup. Automatic e-mail notification has also been added. PitStop Server 2.0 costs $1,699, or $399 for the upgrade from PitStop Server 1.x.
In related news, Enfocus Software has also announced a new certified training partner program. The company is offering the program to individuals and training companies; those who meet training guidelines will receive official certification and support, training materials available for license and discounts on Enfocus products.
