QPDF was originally created in 2001 and modified periodically between 2001 and 2005 during my employment at Apex CoVantage. Upon my departure from Apex, the company graciously allowed me to take ownership of the software and continue maintaining it as an open source project, a decision for which I am very grateful. I have made considerable enhancements to it since that time. I feel fortunate to have worked for people who would make such a decision. This work would not have been possible without their support.
In 2020, I joined Advent Health Partners, which has sponsored some previous QPDF work and generously allows me to spend some “company time” maintaining QPDF.
