Enfocus Upgrades Preflighting and Editing


GHENT, BELGIUM | Enfocus, is a business unit of Esko, reports the release of PitStop Pro and PitStop Server version 12.1, providing full compatibility with Apple's recently released OS X 10.9, also known as Mavericks. PitStop 12.1 is available immediately, and is free to all current PitStop 12 customers.

PitStop-based applications are said to be the industry standard for PDF preflighting and editing. PitStop is able to correct typographic errors, change color spaces, and fix hundreds of other PDF problems, all within one application.

Fabian Prudhomme, VP of Enfocus, says that ensuring PitStop's compatibility with Mavericks was an important priority for the Enfocus development team. "The Enfocus policy is to wait until a full version of an operating system is released before we ensure compatibility. This allows for last-minute changes, such as those Apple undertook before releasing Mavericks. However, because Mavericks is free, we knew there would be immediate demand by the early adopters who started using Mavericks before Apple made important post-release changes. We therefore focused on expediting the coding, testing, and availability of this Mavericks-compatible release.”

In addition to being compatible with Mavericks, PitStop 12.1 is also compatible with Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Reported PitStop benefits including Breakthrough Image Editing and Missing Font Replacement. Users of PitStop 12.1 can take advantage of all the "pocket knife" features the new PitStop 12+ family offers. These features let users manipulate everything in a PDF, without having to open a new application. PitStop users can access the Monotype Baseline platform, a new cloud-based service solution said to solve the challenge of missing fonts in PDF files.
