Release of Papyrus AFP Viewer Freeware V7.1 SP9

The latest update of Papyrus AFP Viewer Freeware, 7.1 SP9 (build number has been released and is now available for download from the ISIS Papyrus website.


In this version you will find the following improvements:

Available as Windows application
Support for plugins is changing for some modern web browsers because of security, performance and stability issues. As a result, the complete web ecosystem is approaching a point where most recent browser versions will not be available to run plugin content. Companies may stay with a browser vendor version that supports plugins. ISIS Papyrus is committed to continue support for IE and Firefox that support NPAPI. As alternative we offer since Papyrus V7.1 SP9 the installation of Papyrus AFP Viewer Freeware as Windows application.

New user interface design
The style of the whole user interface was completely reworked including all icons following the ISIS Papyrus user interface design concept.


The previously used Properties toolbar was replaced by the Papyrus Software AFP Viewer logo which provides version information and allows you to search for updates or contact ISIS Papyrus. Other items were moved to the Options toolbar.
Enjoy the flat design and accessibility optimized style!

Easy usage of external AFP resources
Together with the new Windows application also a default structure for external resources is provided. You can use this structure to manage you external resources in the file system, which helps to reduce the AFP size considerably. Consult the Papyrus AFP Viewer Installation and Reference Guide for further details.
