2020.11 Release Notes

Release date: 17th November 2020

Next FormVu release: 12th January 2021


[HTML-3416] - Embedded font has incorrect unicode character range values
Workaround added for font that does not conform to specification.

[HTML-3413] - Experimental Text Mode
Added experimental text mode which fixes layering of HTML text that should be hidden whilst also maintaining similar file size and rendering performance characteristics. This mode also benefits from improved accuracy of the text appearance.

This mode can be tested using the -DexperimentalTextMode=true system property.

Please let us know if you have any feedback regarding this experimental text mode. Our intention is for this to graduate to a normal feature in the next release, however we are still deciding how it should impact the existing settings.

[HTML-3421] - Add Zoom to FormViewer for FDF files
Converted FDF files will now be able zoom in and out when using the default FormViewer interface. ➕ and ➖ buttons will now be available in the menu, adding the ability to zoom in and out respectively. Output now contains formviewer.js, formviewer.css & config.js. Support for XFA files is currently under investigation.

Update to the FormVu documentation website (coming soon)
We will be migrating our documentation from Zendesk to a Jekyll based website. We hope this change will allow us to make further improvements to the documentation going forwards. Expect this to change over in the coming days.
