Package "kchmviewer"

This package belongs to a PPA: GetDeb Apps

Name: kchmviewer


CHM viewer for KDE
KchmViewer is a chm (MS HTML help file format) viewer, written in C++.
Unlike most existing CHM viewers for Unix, it uses Trolltech Qt widget
library, and does not depend on KDE or GNOME. However, it may be compiled
with full KDE support, including KDE widgets and KIO/KHTML.

The main advantage of KchmViewer is non-English language support. Unlike
others, KchmViewer in most cases correctly detects help file encoding,
correctly shows tables of context of Russian, Korean, Chinese and Japanese
help files, and correctly searches in non-English help files (search for
MBCS languages - ja/ko/ch is still in progress).

Completely safe and harmless. Does not support JavaScript in any way,
optionally warns you before opening an external web page, or switching to
another help file. Shows an appropriate image for every TOC entry.

KchmViewer Has complete chm index support, including multiple index entries,
cross-links and parent/child entries in index as well as Persistent bookmarks
support. Correctly detects and shows encoding of any valid chm file.

  * New upstream version
    - Version 6.1 released
    - Keyboard usability improved thanks to the Giuseppe "Cowo" Corbelli.
    - The focus is now moved to the content page once the link is clicked, so
    the keyboard navigation is available immediately. You can switch the
    focus back by pressing Ctrl+(1-4).
    - Added extended keyboard shortcuts for FindNext and FindPrevious; F3
    still works.
    - Navigation tab window activation (Contents, Search, Index, Bookmarks)
    now automatically focus the proper element.
    - The items in the navigation page now reacts on onItemActivated, and
    hence act on key and follow the DE policy (such as respecting
    KDE single click).
    - Upon successful search, the focus moves to the results list.
    - Titles are now space-trimmed.
    - Fixed binary TOC parser check which led to crashes for some CHM files.
    - Fixed incorrect settings file storage name when the CHM file contains
    multiple dots.
    - Fixed the Ctrl+click and Shift+click when the release event was
    intercepted by other applications (i.e. GoldenDict)
    - 'Esc' closes the search dialog and restores focus in the content
