Snowbound Announces New Version of HTML5 Document Viewer
Snowbound Software, a provider of document viewing technology, has announced the release of VirtualViewer HTML5 4.6 for both Java and .NET, the latest version of the firm's HTML5 document viewer. The new version includes performance and feature enhancements related to viewing and managing documents.
Snowbound's VirtualViewer HTML5 document viewer and works with any modern browser, provides on-the-go mobile document viewing, and delivers cross-platform support.
In terms of faster performance, Snowbound says it has made upgrades which allow users to view, convert, and manage Microsoft Office documents, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, at increased speeds. Benchmark testing showed that the viewer now loads these documents six or more times faster than before. These enhancements are also available in the new version of the firm's document conversion SDK, RasterMaster.
According to Snowbound, the new release also adds the ability for users to search for patterns in text, including social security numbers, phone numbers, credit card numbers, and email addresses. Users can use this feature to quickly locate, redact, or collaborate on important information within documents.
Additional functionality now enables users to move individual or multiple pages from a document into a new or existing document by simply dragging the thumbnails into the desired tab. In addition, the viewer now displays user information on each annotation, including the date and time stamp for when the annotation was made.
The release also includes support for the DWG file format (the native file format for AutoCAD data files) for 64-bit Windows systems.
