Through seeing on code, Kiero do a lot of work even for "just" gui: 130 kb of source code for GUI only (+80kb of toolbar images which done as C arrays as well). And thats only GUI, while there is also system-related routines, which are about 100kb of source code too, and some other parts there and there. Writing the same from scratch will be a long and boring way, for sure (yep, we can keep system-related part, but 130kb of gui sources are a lot).

Well that indeed doesn't sound very promising but let's see when you've got the MUI version ready. You can contact me then, you know my e-mail.

I have just tested Vpdf 1.1 included MOS 3.1.
Let me tell you that it is not matured enough yet IMHO. It has some gui bugs, and lacks some features that AmiPDF has. It displayed some files incorrectly which displayed correctly even with Apdf on MOS. Can't find among other things bitmap printing, find and clipboard functionality. The toolbar is fixed horizontally and can't move to the side which is a vital feature to view paper sized documents.
There was some files which handled faster than AmiPDF, some not much faster. It IS faster, but not mindblowingly.

I don't sure we talk about the same version, but that was my first impression. AmiPDF has room for improvement that sure, but I'm tired this constantly start from ground situations instead of real ongoing developments.

We just can't be sure if AmiPDF will ever be improved / fixed and developed futher. But with VPDF it at least opensourced, so once we port it one time, we can only apply new changes (if they still will be open sourced, of course).

As its already faster than AmiPDF , its worth to have choice. The same as with browsers: more the better.

You are right about that. We can't be sure that Hyperion has the source/right to develop it further. However it is part of the OS distribution, that should mean something.

Anyway, do you know some place where bugs can be reported for Vpdf? I can't find any word beside the executable.

Good luck for the porting!

Hyperion does have source code and the rights to develop AmiPDF further. There just isn't any pressing need to do much with it.

If some 3rd parties want to create more PDF viewers that is perfectly fine as well.

Ok then

Most probably you know already but since a while (the new MorphOS release) there is also a new version of VPDF, here the direct link:

I'm sure looking at it from your perspective with a long todo list there isn't a pressing need.
IMO that doesn't mean it couldn't see improvements, bugfixes or a total replacement
