Sumatra PDF 2.0 released

Thorsten just posted on LaTeX-Community.org, that the version 2.0 of the free Sumatra PDF reader has been released. This PDF reader is known for its speed and its nice simple user interface. It works especially well with forward and inverse search with TeX source and PDF output and it doesn’t lock opened files like as other readers do.

Compared to v1.9, this major release brings a few changes, as announced in the news:

  • It supports the MOBI eBook format.
  • CHM documents can be opened from network drives.
  • A selection can be copied to the clipboard as an image by using the right-click context menu.
  • It uses ucrt to reduce the program size.

This text is available in German. Dieser Text ist auch in Deutsch verfügbar.

  1. Thanks. I wasn’t aware that Sumatra PDF was non-locking and also supported other file types such as CHM and comic books. Indeed amazing for such a small, portable and fast program.

    I still have to start using forward/inverse search with the LaTeX source.
