Trying to use a hypehnation tex file with Views PDf, I get the following fatal arror (& WSOD):

PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method PdfTemplate::getHyphenPatternsFromTEX()

The offending code is at line 428 of views_pdf_template.php:

$hyphen_patterns = $this->getHyphenPatternsFromTEX($patternFile);

A little research found this:

It appears TCPDF has recently changed the way to call the method getHyphenPatternsFromTEX(). I will attach a patch to update the method call.

We would then be forced to up the requirements to TCPDF version 6.0.001 or greater.
This bugs me a little, since a lot of current Views PDF users are using TCPDF version 5.
Maybe we should detect the version in the code to adapt the function call?

I'd still like to address the concerns of the comment in #2.

For the next "stable" you can say the version 6 > it's required. Or do a patch to handle the diff. We can think about it.

This could be the solution. I tested and seens like works.
