metaobjects announced the immediate availability of PdfCompress 5.0 on Wednesday. The updated version of the PDF compression application adds JPEG2000 compression, which can reduce image sizes by an additional 20 percent. It also can remove extra metadata and editing data to reduce PDF file sizes even more. PdfCompress is available for download at the metaobjects Web site, and is priced at US$27.
