Version 6.1.0 Changelog (November 15, 2013)


  • Significant improvements to rendering performance for image heavy documents. The rendering pipeline now uses SIMD processing and multithreaded execution to speed up image loading and rendering (only available in ARM-v7 and x86 libraries).
  • Tools source code is now included as part of the standard distribution as an Android library. The PDFViewCtrlDemo sample project should now reference the PDFViewCtrlTools project on the same workspace. The code can also be used as a template to build new tools.
  • [Tools] Added new DigitalSignature tool, a new sample annotation tool showing how to apply a digital signature to a signature field. It allows the user to draw his/her own signature or choose an image file as the appearance. Please note that this tool is for demonstration purposes and uses a pre-generated dummy certificate for signing.
  • [Tools] Added new RichMedia tool, which can play embedded rich media content (supported media formats are dependent on the device's Android version).
