Software update: Foxit Reader 6.1.1

Foxit Software has released version 6.1.1 of Foxit Reader. This alternative to Adobe Reader works great with most PDF documents, but complex or very large documents can sometimes be a bit too much of a challenge. However, it is a godsend for computers with limited resources. The installation comes bundled with some extras from Google, so pay attention during the installation. The changelog for this release looks like this:

  • SharePoint Integration Enhancement
  • Extensive Find & Search
  • “.CSV” Support for Form Export
  • Easier File Attaching and Appending
