Update 2.1.3 (September 27th, 2011)

  • Fixed a bug involving rendering of the preview pages at low res on retina display introduced a few updates ago.

Update: 1.0.19 (Sep 5th, 2011)

Update: 1.0.18 (Sep 2nd, 2011)

  • Hardcoded the CID font files inside the library. No need to keep them in the bundle. They will be physically removed from the repo at later date.

  • Small fix to space handling in both text search and extraction.

Update: 1.0.16 (Aug 10th, 2011)

Update: 1.0.14 (Aug 05th, 2011)

  • Added methods to convert points and rect to and from different coordinate systems. Take a look at the MFDocumentViewController for details.
  • Documented the method to get the cropbox and rotation angle for each document page.

Update: 1.0.13 (Jul 26th, 2011)

  • Finally fixed the bad behavior of the detail (tiled) view on retina device.
  • Fixed a bug involving rendering of the preview pages at low res on retina display introduced a few updates ago.
  • The -didGoToPage callback is now called once when a page is changed on user scroll input.

Update: 1.0.12 (Jul 21th, 2011)

  • Fixed the bleeding of the pdf, usually on the front and back covers, introduced with the previous fixes.

Update: 1.0.11 (Jul 18th, 2011)

  • Fixed a bug where disabling the shadow, the page resulted with a transparent backing
  • Fixed a rare occurrence of a crash while searching due to array boundaries miscalculation

Update: 1.0.10 (Jul 15th, 2011)

  • Added a sample application (FastPdfKit Resizing Sample) to illustrate how to handle the situation where the MFDocumentViewController's view is added as a subview of another view. The MFDocumentViewController has not been created to used that way, but there's a simple workaround to getting things work in most cases.

Update: 1.0.9 (Jun 22th, 2011)

  • Added directional lock to the page scroll view.
  • Changed popover behavior in the DocumentViewControllerKiosk. This should fix crash when reopening a document when dismissed with an open popover.
  • Fixed a few more leaks.

1.0.8 (Jun 10th, 2011)

  • Thumbnails are laid out correctly upon rotation.

1.0.7 (Jun 07th, 2011)

  • Fixed a nasty bug in the parser of TrueType font. CMap parser redone on the ground up to be formatting agnostic. Most of the search/extraction related crash should be fixed now. Remember to try the test_ versions of search and extraction function.

1.0.6 (May 27th, 2011)

  • Added an optional tiled version of the overlay view. If you want sharp drawables when zoomed in, set MFDocumentViewController's useTiledOverlayView to YES. Keep in mind that tiled layer rendering is slower, and memory usage is higher.
  • Dropped search view controller and mini search view local copy of search manager delegate's results. They now directly access the data source results. Crash caused by inconsistency between the local copy and the data source data should be fixed.
  • Replaced inner rendering parameters data class with a simpler struct together with a better synchronization between threads. Crash on CALayer status error with NaN origin should be fixed.

1.0.5 (May 19th, 2011)

  • Added two alternative methods in MFDocumentManager for text search and extraction. The methods are (void)test_searchResultOnPage:(NSUInteger)page forSearchTerms:(NSString *)searchTerms (void)test_wholeTextForPage:(NSUInteger)page. They return the same results of the non _test versions. To use them, replace the occurrence of the older methods in the project, as exemplified in comments of TextSearchOperation's main()method and TextDisplayViewController's selectorWholeTextForPage: method.

1.0.4 (May 3rd, 2011)

  • Fixed the floating page issue, when the page is changed when zoomed in.

1.0.3 (May 2nd, 2011)

  • Better handling of the device orientation at startup.

1.0.2 (Apr 29th, 2011)

  • Fixed a bug where right drawables were not displayed.
  • Zoom animation for setPage:withZoomLevel:onRect: is now correct. Moreover, passing 0 as the level of zoom will let the application try to fit the rect on screen.
  • Fixed a crash when an annotation with an uri shorter than 7 char is found.
  • Added leftPageNumber and rightPageNumber variables to the MFDocumentViewController.
  • Fixed the autoMode on rotation not being considered at startup.

1.0.1 (Apr 27th, 2011)

  • Replaced URLForResource with pathForResources for 3.X compatibility;
  • Added (float)zoomScale and (CGPoint)zoomOffset methods to MFDocumentViewController to get zoom position;
  • Added support for CGPDFDocumentCreateWithProvider with method initWithDataProvider:(CGDataProviderRef)provider;
  • Option to remove shadow and render the page fullscreen on MFDocumentViewController using (float)padding and (BOOL)showShadow methods;
  • Fixed another crash with search results.

1.0 (Apr 19th, 2011)

  • Fixed ignored optional flag for the didChangeMode: callback.
  • Added didReceiveTapOnAnnotationRect:wither:onPage: method. This replaces didReceiveURIRequest:, but the latter is still called.

1.0RC2 (Apr 6th, 2011)

  • Fixed a crash when the searched string will not fit in the mini search view. Bookmarks not being saved when the popover is dismissed by clicking outside fixed. Double tap to zoom out will now work even when the zoom in has been performed manually. Added a callback to ask the DocumentViewController delegate if a video will have to autoplay or not. Added page parameter to the double tap annotation callback. Removed a few unneeded logs and minor tweaks.

1.0RC1 (Mar 8th, 2011)
