Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-3099
2009-03-28 00:57:36
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : chmsee
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 1.0.1
Release     : 10.fc9
URL         : http://chmsee.gro.clinux.org/
Summary     : A Gtk+2 CHM document viewer
Description :
A gtk2 chm document viewer.

It uses chmlib to extract files. It uses gecko to display pages. It supports
displaying multilingual pages due to gecko. It features bookmarks and tabs.
The tabs could be used to jump inside the chm file conveniently. Its UI is
clean and handy, also is well localized. It is actively developed and
maintained. The author of chmsee is Jungle Ji and several other great people.

Hint
* Unlike other chm viewers, chmsee extracts files from chm file, and then read
and display them. The extracted files could be found in $HOME/.chmsee/bookshelf
directory. You can clean those files at any time and there is a special config
option for that.
* The bookmark is related to each file so not all bookmarks will be loaded,
only current file's.
* Try to remove $HOME/.chmsee if you encounter any problem after an upgrade.
