Lucide beta 4 available to eComStation customers

October 16, 2006 by Joachim Benjamins

Serenity Systems International and today released beta 4 of Lucide, a document viewer for eComStation designed as a replacement for Acrobat Reader.

One goal of Lucide is to have a fast document viewer which is well integrated in the eComStation WPS and supports features like drag and drop and printing and which makes as easy as possible to work with PDF and other files on eComStation.

Changes since the previous beta release:

- Added 'Zoom In/Out' button to zoom in/out with mouse click/ctrl+click.
- Replace ligatures when converting text from unicode to system codepage (closed ticket #45).
- Poppler (pdf rendering) library updated to version 0.5.4.
- Lucide's internationalization now respects 'territory' modifier.
- Fixed crash on PDF load during fonts enumeration on font files which FreeType doesn't understand (closed ticket #83).
- Prevent Lucide from close on broken JPEGs (closed ticket #80).
- In single-page view pressing PgUp/PgDn if already at top/bottom of page moves to previous/next page (closed ticket #73).
- Enable printing in reverse order (closed ticket #88).
- Lucide.exe loads needed DLLs from install path (closed ticket #78).
- WarpIn installation optionally sets Lucide as default program for PDF files (closed tickets #74, #79).
- Internal fixes.
- Added NLS-files: Spanish, Traditional Chinese (Taiwan), Danish.
- Updated NLS-files: Dutch, German, Swedish.
