FSF says about the next project, which is removed from the list of high-priority free software projects: GNU PDF.
Purpose to the project GNU PDF , since its introduction in 2007, was the full realization of the forthcoming standard ISO 32000-1. We have long been a free viewer PDF, but most of them did not support the newest features PDF, such as annotations and form.
We are pleased to announce that libpoppler , the most common PDF library for GNU / Linux, ripe for the support of these and other features of PDF. This means that any user will be able to use free software program with features that until recently were only available in proprietary software.
