    Admin: pdf previews in NavList messages
    From: Frank Reed

    My Christmas present to NavList members and readers this year: PDF previews in new messages and also messages in the archive. As you might imagine, these make it easier to get some idea of the content of a large file at a glance and generally enhance the experience of browsing messages. For example, have a look at this message from Hanno Ix from about a year ago:

    Or this message from Bob Bernecky in September:

    These previews take some seconds to generate, so you may not see them right away in new messages. There are also a few cosmetic bugs, but I haven't seen any serious problems. Enjoy. By the way, this removes my last objection to using PDF files in NavList messages, so feel free (Antoine, this means you!).
