Three years have passed since PDFObject 1.0 was released, and the browser landscape has changed dramatically. I figured it’s time to dust off PDFObject and see if it can be improved and/or updated for today’s browsers.
I’ve placed a modified edition of PDFObject (version 1.1) on GitHub as an open-source project, allowing anyone to create a fork and make modifications. There are also a handful of example/test HTML files there, too. I could use some help testing the examples in different OS/browser combinations, and with different PDF plugins.
If you have suggestions for improvements, or have a few minutes to test PDFObject examples in your browser/OS of choice, I’d be grateful to hear from you. Just leave a comment below, or send me a message on twitter. So far I’ve only performed some cursory tests in Firefox 3.6 in OSX 10.6.6, but everything seems to work as expected.
I plan to update PDFObject.com soon, too.
