FREMONT, Calif. – July 21, 2011 – Foxit Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today launched Foxit PDF SDK DLL 3.0 and PDF SDK ActiveX 4.0. PDF SDK DLL 3.0 provides developers with fine grain control of PDF functions to differentiate their PDF offering, while PDF SDK ActiveX 4.0 provides a seamless way to integrate PDF technology into applications without requiring deep PDF expertise.

  • Progressive Processing. Allows developers to use idle system resources to improve user experience.
