>Subject: ANNOUNCE: Xpdf 3.01 - a PDF viewer for X
>Glyph & Cog, LLC is pleased to announce a new version of Xpdf, the
>open source Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer for X.  The Xpdf
>project also includes a PDF text extractor, PDF-to-PostScript
>converter, and various other utilities.
>Xpdf runs under the X Window System on Unix, VMS, and OS/2.  The non-X
>components (pdftops, pdftotext, etc.) also run on Win32 systems and
>should run on pretty much any system with a decent C++ compiler.
>Major changes:
>* Added the continuous view mode, including the '-cont' switch and the
>   'continuousView' config file option.
>* At high zoom levels, don't rasterize the entire page - this avoids
>   problems running out of memory.
>* Added "search backward" and "match case" options to the find dialog.
>* Support explicitly masked images and soft masked images.
>See the `CHANGES' file for a complete list of changes.
>Source (C++ and C) is available, and it should be fairly easy to
>compile for UNIX, VMS, OS/2, and Win32.
>More information, source code, and precompiled binaries are on the
>xpdf web page and ftp site:
