iText 2.1.0 - 2.1.7 (March 27, 2008 - July, 2009)

The most visible change in 2.1 is the fact that the RTF package is separated from the main iText.jar. There's also plenty of new RTF functionality involving the reuse existing RTF files.

Making iText a more professional library than it already is, is one of the goals of the 2.1.x releases as the library is backed by a company in Europe (1T3XT BVBA) and a company in the US (iText Software Corp) since 2008.
