1.125.1. RHBA-2011:0517: poppler bug fix update
Updated poppler packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Poppler is a Portable Document Format (PDF) rendering library, used by applications such as Evince.
* Due to an error in memory allocation, previous versions of poppler may have terminated unexpectedly while rendering certain PDF documents. With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to address this issue, and poppler no longer fails to render such PDF documents. (BZ#698595
* Prior to this update, certain PDF documents may have been rendered with some characters displayed backwards. With this update, an upstream patch has been applied to ensure that poppler takes into account the horizontal scaling when updating the font, and such PDF documents are now rendered correctly. (BZ#703176
All users who require poppler are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
