Below is the changelog for the public builds of novaPDF since the release of version 8.0. You can download the latest version of novaPDF here: http://www.novapdf.com/download.html

NOTE: Starting December 31st, 2015 novaPDF version 6.x and 5.x are no longer supported. If you are still using one of these older versions we highly recommend an upgrade to version 9. This will ensure you get the latest updates and email support. Furthermore, novaPDF 7.x (and previous) has not been tested on Windows 10 so we cannot guarantee full compatibility. If you plan to use Windows 10 you should upgrade to novaPDF 9.x.
