qpdfview super fast start up after latest update

Asked by monkeybrain2012 on 2018-05-23

Hi,

I am really impressed after the latest qpdfview update. I keep many tabs open on the Ubuntu 16.04 machine, it used to take a while to load, but after the latest update the start up is really fast. Did you implement some lazy loading features?

Thanks for the great work!

Hello again,

version 0.4.17 moved loading of interactive elements like links and form fields out of the main thread into the thread pool that is also used for rendering which means that files open faster but it may take a moment until those interactive elements are available.

Best regards,
Adam

Oh, as an aside, in the latest update the qpdfview's data directory in Ubuntu 16.04 has moved from .local/share/data/qpdfview/qpdfview to .local/share/qpdfview/qpdfview. Momentarily I thought I lost all my tabs. But all is good now after moving database to
.local/share/qpdfview/qpdfview

Not sure if that was intended..

Keep up with the great work!

Hello again,

the database is not intentional, but rather Qt4 and Qt5 use different paths for where to store application data.
