JDB has again released a new update for Ands, increasing the functionality of the homebrew PDF viewer for the Nintendo DS even further with a whole load of new features and bugfixes. This release adds quite a number of new features, including a new viewing mode, a new mini-help screen and a file filter for the app’s file browser. Here’s the complete changelog:

Features:

  • PDF - Image 1New viewing mode. This is the ‘reader’ mode. (This serves two purposes: First, it lets you quickly navigate through pages. Second, it lets you read the text of a PDF in a format appropriate for the NDS.)
  • D-pad now pans the screen. I got alot of requests for this one!
  • File browser is now filtered; will only show PDF files. Note that it will show folders that don’t have PDF files in them.
  • You can now adjust the backlit brightness by holding down Select + Up/Down arrows.
  • You can now cancel out of the file browser with ‘B’, or by clicking the file browser button again.
  • Rendering is getting progressively faster.
  • Mini-help screen and info screen on startup.
  • Added splash screen. If you find this annoying, remove the splash files in the FONTS folder, and it will bypass this step.
  • Fonts are external now. This gives us alot more memory to play with at the expense of higher load times on certain PDF’s. (Note: I took out the dingbats font. If anyone as a PDF that has dingbats, I will hand out that file too… It is much larger though).

Bug Fixes:

  • You can no longer scroll off the bottom of the file browser.
  • Some memory issues resolved that led to instability.
  • The zoom-tool used to mess up if you clicked it more than once. Doesn’t anymore.
  • Tons of other stuff I’m sure…
