For immediate release

Berlin, Germany – November 24th, 2002

metaobject announces the immediate availability of verson 3.0 of the
popular PDF compression tool for Mac OS X.

New in version is an option for applying compression to many common text
PDFs, in addition to the image-compression options in previous versions.
The combination of these options produces the smallest PDFs possible from
native Mac OS X applications.

PdfCompress has received rave reviews from users and a 4.7 star rating (of
5 possible) from pdfworker, better than any other PDF compression utility.
PdfCompress still costs just US $25 per copy to license.

PdfCompress is a fully native Cocoa application, not just a Cocoa wrapper
around legacy libraries.
