MuPDF 1.11 RC1 released. Install MuPDF PDF and E-book viewer for Linux Ubuntu Systems. MuPDF is a lightweight PDF, XPS, and E-book viewer which is tailored for high quality anti-aliased graphics. It renders text with metrics and spacing accurate to within fractions of a pixel for the highest fidelity in reproducing the look of a printed page on screen.
The viewer is small, fast, yet complete. It supports many document formats, such as PDF, XPS, OpenXPS, CBZ, EPUB, and FictionBook 2. You can annotate PDF documents and fill out forms with the mobile viewers (this feature is coming soon to the desktop viewer as well).
MuPDF version 1.11 is now available. It is primarily a bug fix release. New features:
- PDF portfolio support with command line tool “mutool portfolio”.
- Add callbacks to load fallback fonts from the system.
- Use system fonts in Android to reduce install size.
- Flag to disable publisher styles in EPUB layout.
- Improved SVG output.
