Just doing my daily round of the internet I found this at AppleInsider,
concerning the future features of Tiger:
> PDF Kit is a new Cocoa framework in Tiger that will let developers
> add PDF viewing and navigation to their Mac OS X application with just
> a few clicks in Interface Builder. The kit will automatically handle
> the rendering of the PDF content and provide controls for navigation
> and setting the zoom level.
> Developers may also choose to go beyond simple PDF viewing, as the
> PDF Kit PDF Kit includes a suite of developer classes for adding
> capabilities to perform text searches, manage selections, add
> annotations, and specify the behavior of some graphical elements.
> Sources say that starting with the release of Tiger, Apple’s
> "Preview" application will use the new PDF Kit as the foundation for
> its PDF support.
It's just a rumour, of course, but who knows? Possibly this will impact
in due course our PDF viewers of choice.
