This feature request has been implemented and is available in the latest versions of GemBox.Document.
You can read more about this release on the following blog post:
Note, this is our long-term goal and we are progressively working on it (a cross-platform PDF support).
But I'm afraid this will require more time than a few months.
Currently, I don't have any release date to share, but if I had to guess I would say that a year of development is a closer estimate than that.
We plan to release cross-platform support for saving to PDF within a month.
How is this feature coming along? Do you have any information, on the dependencies of your possible implementation? Like if there is a dependency to System.Drawing or similar for image processing? I've known this to cause issues in certain environments.
We're at the final stages of implementation, after which we'll conduct some testing.
In short, we're hoping to release this feature before the end of February.
Also, System.Drawing dependency will remain for image processing, at least for now.
There should be no other dependency.
Any update on this feature?
Yes, we have successfully implemented a new cross-platform PDF writer.
The official release will be done at the beginning of the following week.
I assume that means we can remove the framework reference to windows desktop ?
Yes, you can now remove the framework reference.
