k2pdfopt v2.03 released

K2pdfopt v2.03 is released. This update only affects the MS Windows binaries. The GUI correctly converts in native mode now and MuPDF has been modified with patches from Sumatra PDF reader so that it now utilizes MS Windows system fonts for non-embedded PDF fonts. See the web site for details.

Output file to large

Hello and congratulations about k2pdfopt!

Today I installed for 1st time your last version of this software (v2.03).

I am facing a problem, I red this entire thread, and everything at your site but I could not find a solution.

I have as an input file a pdf document probably made by word, so it is ocr-ed, small and clear; when I convert it with 2pdfopt the output is something like 3 to 5 times larger.

I am attaching an example of 2 files for your convenient.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your time,
Angelos

You're not doing anything wrong. In order to re-flow text, the most efficient way to do the output is to bitmap it (at least it is the most efficient way for k2pdfopt given its limitations), and that's what k2pdfopt does. The drawback is that it increases the file size some, particularly for files like this which are generated by Word. The 2.5-MB file size seems quite reasonable, though. BTW, no need to read through the entire thread. I don't think anybody expects you to read 500 posts before asking a question--just maybe search on some smart keywords.

Great. Can't wait.

//Need to test it on a PDF textbook I'm reading via Koreader + reflow - the reflow is perfect (i know its k2pdfopt in the background) but koreader gets slow with such a large pdf.

Temporary downloads

For now, I've attached the Win32 version of v2.03. I'll remove this when my site comes back.
Edit, 10-8-13: Added linux x64 binary. The word from my web hoster is that the main server *and* the backup server crashed at the same time (how lucky for me). They are still working the issue.
Edit, 10-10-13: Added linux i386 version.
Edit, 10-17-13: Web site finally fully restored. Removed attachments.

Linux version

Willus this tool sounds amazing! Any chance of putting also the linux 64-bit version available in the meantime?

Web site woes

It's sort of turned into a Shakespearean tragic comedy at this point. I ping my web hoster daily, and they reply back that the data center technicians are working feverishly on the problem and will have it fixed "very soon." They've been saying that since Saturday. I am not hopeful and am looking into an alternate hoster at this point, but I will have to substantially re-build my site as my last full backup stored locally on my PC is from March 2012.

I have posted a link to post #577 on my website, since many people try my page instead of yours now. That way they aren't lost completely.
