Details

Updated poppler packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

Poppler is a Portable Document Format (PDF) rendering library, used by
applications such as Evince.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Due to an error in memory allocation, previous versions of poppler may have
terminated unexpectedly while rendering certain PDF documents. With this update,
the underlying source code has been modified to address this issue, and poppler
no longer fails to render such PDF documents. (BZ#698595)

* When working with a PDF document with text spanning multiple columns, text
selection may not have followed the flow of the text. This update improves the
text selection to respect the text flow. (BZ#703175)

* Prior to this update, certain PDF documents may have been rendered with some
characters displayed backwards. With this update, an upstream patch has been
applied to ensure that poppler takes into account the horizontal scaling when
updating the font, and such PDF documents are now rendered correctly.
(BZ#703176)

All users who require poppler are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix these bugs.
