The goal of the GNU PDF Suite project is to develop and provide a free, high-quality and fully functional set of libraries and programs that implement the PDF file format.

Downloading GNU PDF

The most recent version of this library may be obtained by cloning the git archive as described online at:


Specifically by running the following command:

git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/pdf.git

Please note that this project is in development, but feel free to send suggestions or bug reports to pdf-devel@gnu.org

Mailing lists

PDF has the following mailing list:

Announcements about GNU PDF and most other GNU software are made on info-gnu (archive).

Security reports that should not be made immediately public can be sent directly to the maintainer. If there is no response to an urgent issue, you can escalate to the general security mailing list for advice.

Getting involved

Development of GNU PDF, and GNU in general, is a volunteer effort, and you can contribute. For information, please read How to help GNU. If you'd like to get involved, it's a good idea to join the discussion mailing list (see above).

For development sources, issue trackers, and other information, please see the GNU PDF project page at savannah.gnu.org.
GNU PDF is currently being maintained by Jose Marchesi, Aleksander Morgado and Russell Nathan Hyer. Please use the mailing lists for contact.
