Software update: Foxit Reader 7.2.0

Foxit Software has released version 7.2.0 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 in Foxit Reader 7.2

Issues Addressed in Foxit Reader 7.2

  • Fixed an issue where Foxit Reader could not open PDF files in Internet Explorer.
  • Fixed a security issue where memory corruption may occur when opening certain XFA forms, which could lead to a controlled crash execution.
  • Fixed an issue where “Foxit Reader” folder was reserved after clean uninstallation in 32-bit OS.
