Below is the changelog for the public builds of novaPDF 7.0 - novaPDF 7.7. This is an old version that was developed and supported between November 2009 and June 2014. If you are looking for the latest version of novaPDF, you can download it 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.
