JPdfBookmarks Stopped

I am sorry to report that I have to stop the distribution  of JPdfBookmarks, I probably will migrate the project to open source as soon as I have enough time to spend on it, for the time I cannot comply with some licenses compatibility so I cannot ditribute the program anymore. 
Thanks to all for your support and beg your pardon.

What would be needed to make JPdfBookmarks available ? (what is the java library part that must be replaced by something else ?)

Anyway a publication of the source code (with the removal of any non-free library, maybe), would be a good idea, i think.

(and thanks for you work on this tool, by the way !)

Thank you and don't worry the project is not dead, I only need some time to evaluate the best solution and put it into practice. When the project will migrate to open source any help will be appreciated, stay tuned ciao.

Sorry to hear this, Flaviano :(

i really appreciate your software, and your kind support as a developer. i hope you will find soon and easily a solution to troubles.

maybe if you just explain exactly what is blocking you to publish again the software, others could help in finding a solution!

for now: ciao!

Ciao Marco, thank you for your support, the problem is that there are too many open source licenses out there and some of them are not compatible with each other (I think this is a real problem for the free software world). Anyway now I have switched to the java pdf renderer library which is not as advanced as the one I used before in my opinion but is released as lgpl instead of mpl. I will soon release jpdfbookmarks as gpl ... let you know ciao!
