Editing PDF documents with Cabaret Stage


Article from Issue 77/2007

Linux has had the ability to display PDF documents for many years, but it lacked an editing tool until now: enter Cabaret Stage.

In the past, Linux users had to rely on Wine and the Adobe Acrobat program to edit PDF documents or complete PDF forms on Linux. Switzerland’s Cabaret Solutions AG now offers a product – called Cabaret Stage – that is designed to fill the gap, at least on x86 Linux distributions. Because the tool is implemented in Java, Linux support was not a big step. This said, the current version of Cabaret Stage is not only a prototype, but it is also a commercial product that is free of charge for private use.
