I agree it probably doesn't make sense to ship the 32bit x86 version unless
there's demand for it.

That contains only wrappers for PHP, Python and Ruby. The PDFNetC is still
closed source: . The latest
version (6.7.1) still bundles stuff like openssl-1.0.1c, libpng-1.6.12 and

I actually tried dropping the latest upstream version in place of the one
bundled with MendeleyDesktop and it crashes on some PDFs I tried to import.
