Software update: Foxit Reader 6.2.0

Foxit Software has released version 6.2.0 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 following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

New Features

  • PDF/A File Notification.
  • Foxit Plugin Platform.
  • SCUP Catalog for Automatic Application Updates.

Feature Enhancements

  • UX Improvement.
  • Controls Operations to Toolbars by GPO template.
  • Word-to-PDF Conversion with Document Properties Maintained.
  • Supports Windows Embedded Standard 7.
  • Enables SharePoint Plugin by Default without Registry Entry.
