The main focus of this release is a complete overhaul of the PDF previewer, featuring

  • Faster rendering

  • Continuous scrolling mode — no more abrupt jumps from one page to the next (the non-continuous mode is still available from the View menu)
  • Two-pages (spread) mode
  • Selecting and copying text out of a PDF
  • Going back to the previous view after clicking on a link (by pressing Alt+left arrow)

In addition, several bugs were fixed and support for Mac OS X was improved by adopting Travis CI for building and deploying.
