Were pleased to announce a new version of our open-source document image viewer, Diva.js. Diva.js is especially suited for use in rare and archival book digitization initiatives where viewing high-resolution images can show even the smallest detail present on the physical object. Using Diva, libraries, archives, and museums can present high-resolution document page images in an instant-on interface with a user-friendly interface that has been optimized for speed and flexibility.
New features in Diva.js 3.0:
Several speed optimizations Documents load and scroll faster.
Improved mobile device support Tap and pinch to navigate through documents.
Horizontal orientation Switch between the default vertical page layout and a horizontal scrolling layout.
Events system Allows you to pass streaming data from the document viewer into your own website and plugins.
