PDF Viewer

New Features

For those of you that like to store PDFs in your repositories, you can now view your documents in the repository browser - just like you would with the rest of your code and images. PDFs are rendered using PDF.js - a fantastic open-source project by Mozilla.

In the coming weeks we will be adding more functionality to the viewer, and we'll be implementing it in various other places in the UI.

Please let us know if you have any feedback.
