mat2 0.12.4
Sat 30 April 2022 — download

There is a new bugfix version of MAT2: 0.12.4, mostly fixing a major bug that could result in crashes/errors when processing multiple files via the command line interface. Can you spot the bug?

with concurrent.futures.ProcessPoolExecutor() as executor:
    futures = list()
    for f in files:
        future = executor.submit(clean_meta, f, args.lightweight, inplace, args.sandbox, policy)
        futures.append(future)
    for future in concurrent.futures.as_completed(futures):
        no_failure &= future.result()

If not, check the fix here. This release also addresses a couple of minor issues:

  • Fix possible errors/crashes when processing multiple files via the command line interface
  • Use a fixed PDF version for the output
  • Improve compatibility with modern versions of rsvg
  • Improve the robustness of the command line interface with regard to control characters

As usual, if you know some python or web-fu help is more than welcome.
