We are happy to announce the Managana version 1.5.0, a free cross-platform software for digital
publication. The development of the new version switched from the Adobe Flex SDK to the new
Apache Flex version 4.9.1.

This is a huge update with lots of new features and possibilities for content creators. Here
are some highlights of the new version:

Player
* improved user interface for high density screens
* new notes and bookmarks feature
* new search functionality
* zoom controls for the web-based player
* content manager for easy access to all available communities and also for content download
for offline access
* new HTML box overlay to show interactive, cross-platform html-based widgets
* support for the new Leap Motion Controller interaction device
* customizable transitions for various navigation types, like sequences on X, Y and Z axis
* swipe gestures support on touch screens for navigation on X and Y axis
* print support on desktop systems (press the ā€œpā€ key)

update previous apps you created on it, remember to save your certificate files and use them
on the new wizard tool
