Sumatra PDF – open source PDF viewer for Windows

Sumatra PDF is a free, open-source PDF viewer for Windows. The program is a single EXE file (about 803 KB) so it is portable. Opens PDFs very quickly (much faster than Adobe Acrobat reader) and so far have had no problems opening and viewing PDFs created with OpenOffice.org, PDFCreator or Paperport. Already added to the TTCS OSSWIN CD for v1.78 and to http://del.icio.us/ttcs

InfraRecorder – opensource CD/DVD burning software for Windows

Added InfraRecorder to the TTCS OSSWIN CD which will be released later today, bandwidth permitting.

InfraRecorder is a free CD/DVD burning solution for Microsoft Windows. It offers a wide range of powerful features; all through an easy to use application interface and Windows Explorer integration. InfraRecorder has a task oriented menu similiar to that of Nero Express :

InfraRecorder Express menu - task oriented menu

Selecting a task (for example, a data CD) brings you to a interface that many CD/DVD burning users will find easy to use :

  • An Explorer view which allows you to browse your computer and select files to add to the CD.
  • A Disc Layout view which shows what data is to be included on the CD.
  • Underneath the Disc Layout view is a “space meter” which shows the space taken up by your disc layout.

InfraRecorder GUI for creating a data CD

So its very easy to use and I’ve plan to use it to create the TTCS OSSWIN CD ISO and for burning copies for meetings. InfraRecorder is available for Windows 95/98/Me and 2000/XP/Vista.
