Created by oriolpont on 2013-02-28 and last modified on 2013-03-14

This is the Compress PDF script for nautilus by Ricardo Ferreira. It contains some of the fixes discussed in the Compress PDF page such as the Hebrew tranlation, multifile support (by Edouard Saintesprit) and additional personal tunings.

I will try to push the project a little bit further, though at present I am not sure how much.
