What's new in Foxit Reader 2.0

Foxit Reader 2.0 rolls out ConnectedPDF, a breakthrough technology that brings new levels of accountability, collaboration, and productivity to the sharing and tracking of PDF documents worldwide. ConnectedPDF creates a new Internet of Documents by embedding identity and intelligence into PDF documents for the first time. It connects you and your PDF documents, and helps you get control of your content easily.

New features:

1. ConnectedPDF---More than PDF

ConnectedPDF extends the ISO PDF standard to allow each PDF to carry an identity assigned by a cloud service, and allows document tracking and sharing no matter where a document goes or how many distributions and modifications are done to it. ConnectedPDF features are accessed via the Connect menu.

a. Create a ConnectedPDF document

Converts existing PDFs to ConnectedPDF documents with one step. You can also automatically convert any PDF document you work with to a Connected PDF.

b. Register a new version of a ConnectedPDF document

Changed or updated PDF documents can be recorded on the ConnectedPDF server by registering new versions, with all new versions tracked. You can also optionally upload the new version to the server.

c. Request a file

Document users (including both the owner and viewers) can send a request to other users to get files they need or they accidentally deleted, including other versions of a file.

d. Join a connected review without any third-party server

Users with access to a document can join a connected review of a ConnectedPDF document started by a PhantomPDF user without requiring access to a shared server. In a connected review, users can view each other's comments on the document in real time.

e. Control document data and settings on the Document Homepage

Each ConnectedPDF document has a Document Homepage which contains information about the attributes, version history, events, and connections associated with the document. You can access this homepage on the web.

f. Manage file access history and messages with the Personal Homepage

Each ConnectedPDF user has their own Personal Homepage, which allows them to view their own documents, documents they've worked on, and any requests they've sent or received through Connected PDFs.
