3Glyph & Cog, LLC is pleased to announce a new version of Xpdf, the
4open source Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer. The Xpdf project
5also includes a PDF text extractor, PDF-to-PostScript converter, and
6various other utilities.

8*** The Xpdf web site has moved to www.xpdfreader.com ***

10Xpdf uses the Qt toolkit and runs on Linux and Windows. The
11non-graphical components (pdftops, pdftotext, etc.) run on Linux,
12Unix, Windows, MacOSX, and pretty much any other system with a decent
13C++ compiler.
14
15Major changes:
16* Complete rewrite of the xpdf GUI, using Qt instead of Motif.
17* Multithreaded rasterization in the viewer - pages are now rasterized
18 in a separate thread so that scrolling and other UI activity is not
19 blocked.
20* Added a linear text selection mode.
21
22See the `CHANGES' file for a complete list of changes.
23
24Source (C++ and C) is available, and it should be fairly easy to
25compile for Linux and Windows.
