Good news, thanks. Changelog:

* Windows msi installation package supporting silent installation
* New pdfsam-starter.exe and finally no more “javaw.exe not found” error message
* Confirmation sounds are now working on Java 7
* No more “invisible GUI” and crappy “delete gui-config.xml” workaround
* Upgraded thumbnails generation libraries and langpack

Old thread update:

PDF SAM update: 2.2.4 is out, WPP site hasn't updated yet
http://www.pdfsam.org/
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-too ... fsam.shtml

... includes "unethical read for docs protected with owner password" ... which sounds very interesting.

Similar to PDFCreator, the developer has created a Free/Pro version breakdown with some separate features.

There have been some new versions since the last post but nothing I would call ground-breaking:

Still waiting on the WinPenPack crew for this (in fairness, the latest version is only a few weeks old).

Some minor (but welcome) updates from the PDFSAM's basic version:

Quote:
In this new release we added ToC generation to the merge task, we upgraded the PDF engine so results from the split tasks are optimized and in some case they will be way smaller then before, we performed some user interface adjustments that users suggested, you can now turn off the notification that asks for a donation and finally you can save a workspace on exit and load one passing it as a command line argument to PDFsam.

http://www.softpedia.com/progChangelog/ ... 36199.html

There’s a specifically portable version listed as a “platform independent zip file”

Old thread update: Since PDFSAM still does some things that many other tools don't (including commercial) I decided to post a proper set of screenshots:

Imgur now converts everything to video so ... will have to be a link for now:

Imgur still provides the normal GIF link. Both the .gif and .gifv links are identical otherwise, so just remove the "v" and:

In case it is of use for sombody else. I did try PDF Shaper to split a pdf but it returned empty pages.
So I found an open-source App with a claimed portable zip and version in Windows, Mac and Linux (java app).
It can be launched with JavaLauncher. I haven't tested it for portability.

Edit: the new version has additional features but I'm not 100% sure that all features from the old program are present in the new. I recommend keeping a copy of both and can make the old version available if anyone needs it.

This program has saved me several times now. I've used it both with standard PDFs and PowerPoint decks to compare two very similar files in a page-by-page or slide-by-slide view to see even very minor changes between versions by just jumping back and forth between pages.

I'm still having Java problems (as mentioned with my DocFetcher post) but jPortable and PortableApps' Java Launcher was able to get it done with the Platform independent portable zip archive: http://www.pdfsam.org/download-pdfsam-basic/ and launching the pdfsam-community-[version].jar file.
