PDF Explorer V1.5 Build 48 released

PDF Explorer is a PDF file management software.
It allows you to easily index all your pdf documents to a database file
using the metadata fields: Filename, File size, File date, Title,
Subject, Author, Creator, Producer, Creation Date, Modification Date
and Number of Pages.

With PDF Explorer you can easily index your entire collection of pdf
documents, spread by several disks, network places and also within ZIP,
RAR and ACE compressed archives.
You can then search through all the files using boolean expressions and
full text search, view them, extract images, extract text, apply batch
functions, and more.

PDF Explorer can also read out loud the pdf documents text so you can
relax your eyes, or create wav or mp3 audio files so you can listen
later.

PDF Explorer is freeware for personal, non commercial, use.



New in this release:

Three new tools:
- The Anonymizer - Use it to remove all traces of metadata
information from the pdf document.

- Rotate Pages - Use it to rotate all document pages.

- ISBN/DOI Catcher and Resolver - Use it to catch, and later
resolve, using integrated browser, all the ISBN and DOI numbers that
the document have. Nice tool to quick consult references in scientific
papers.

- The beginning of QuickEdit assistants - While in QuickEdit mode
these tools assist the user to speed up the edition of pdf metadata
fields. In this version we have:
- The QuickPaste - clipboard spy tool that popup when text is
copied into Windows clipboard. Use it to quick edit copied text and
send it directly to the respective pdf Info field.
- The ISBN/DOI Sniffer: Active while in Text view mode, popup when
he finds a ISBN or DOI number. Use it to resolve document ISBN or
DOI.He need internet connection to resolve.

- Enhancements in the Text To Speech feature.

- Some interface graphical enhancements.

- Now the startup at custom folder option and the extract images
batch tool are working again.

- It was given special attention to memory leak problems and most
of them are now fixed.

Many more small bug corrections and enhancements.

The way I read it you have to always use the newest beta release. This
will last only 30 days. You can keep dowloading them but I am not
willing to do this.

That's correct. It's not freeware but nagware and crippleware.

From the site: "Also, as freeware version user you are obligated to
always use the last beta because beta versions only work for 30 days.
[...] While registered user you can always use the version you want,
the last stable version or the newest beta."

Sic transit gloria mundi.

I only see one version and it's not labeled as a beta. Situation
unclear. . . some quotes from the site:

http://homepage.oniduo.pt/pdfe/pdfe.html

"PDF Explorer is provided as freeware, but only for private,
non-commercial use (that means at home)."

http://homepage.oniduo.pt/pdfe/buy.html

"Also, as freeware version user you are obligated to always use the last
beta because beta versions only work for 30 days. This way you have to
deal with potential bugs introduced in newer, untested versions. While
registered user you can always use the version you want, the last stable
version or the newest beta."

http://homepage.oniduo.pt/pdfe/participate.html

"You can do it for free, if you only need the freeware version, or get a
free Personal License or Site Licence to pass on my appreciation for
your valuable contribution."

I've emailed the author and asked for clarification.

and received it:

<q>
Because I do not have a group of beta testers, for me all the new
versions are always beta versions. The freeware version has 30 days
limit, continue to work but stop the indexation of new files into the
database, but only to obligate the user to always update to the last
version, ALWAYS available 30 days, more or less, after the old release.

Then it's not freeware imho. It's time limited crippleware.
What a pity.
