Foxit Reader is now available for download. This version is a maintenance release which fixes an issue of Foxit Reader when opening certain PDF files. This issue was caused by the cross-border assignment of an array which may result in memory corruption vulnerabilities or potential memory corruption vulnerabilities.

Foxit Reader now offers new integrations with social networks Facebook and Twitter, Read Out Loud, and many usability enhancements. With over 100 million users, has gained significant new functionality, helping Foxit maintain a clear lead in features and functionality among competitive PDF reader offerings:

Integrate PDF with Your Social Networks

For Facebook and Twitter users, Foxit Reader provides integration to your social networks. Foxit Reader users can log into their account, select text from a PDF document, and share it as Facebook or Twitter status. Users can also take a snapshot of a region of a document and share it as a picture on Facebook or Twitter. Also, users can share the current document, or select a document from Windows Explorer, and share the document using Foxit’s OnDemand CM file sharing capability as a link from their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Listen to PDF Documents with Read Out Loud

The Foxit Reader can read your PDF document to you. This is especially valuable when you’re on the go and you cannot read from a screen. Read Out Loud uses the available voices installed on your system. If you have Speech Application Programming Interface 5 (SAPI 5) installed for text-to-speech, you can choose to have Foxit Reader read your PDF documents to you. In addition to normal text content, Read Out Loud can also read comments, image descriptions, and fillable fields.

What's new in Foxit Reader

Fixed an issue when right-clicking an opened PDF file in an internet browser after changing the UI language.
Fixed an issue where the paper size in the Preview Area of Print Dialogue Box cannot be updated accordingly if users choose the Xerox Printer.
Fixed an issue when switching the interface language.
Fixed an issue where the Paper Drawer cannot be changed to Cassette when printing.
