I am happy to announce the release of Présentation.app 2.2.

Présentation.app is a presentation tool for pdf slides (e.g. produced using LaTeX and the popular beamer class) for Mac OS X.
You can download this release here: http://iihm.imag.fr/blanch/software/osx-presentation/releases/

The notable recent changes are centered on making Présentation.app more usable for distant presentation/teaching.
Features introduced since 2.0:
  - added a "spotlight" mode to highlight on presentation screen
  - added possibility to elarge the cursor on presentation screen
  - added possibility to inset live video from the presenter

Its most notable features are:

+ a presenter view displaying
  - the current and next slide
  - a timer
  - the notes associated to the current slide

+ hyperlinks do work
  - internal links (e.g. navigation links generated by beamer) work
  - links to local video files open the video on the presentation screen
  - links to other files are opened in a webview on the presentation screen

+ usable
  - from the command line (as it is a Python script)
  - from the Finder (as it accepts dropping a PDF file to launch the app)

Changes since 1.9

  - added video overlay for remote presentations
  - added possibility to choose color for onscreen annotation

  - fixed crash on pdf without movies

  - added ability to change cursor size on presentation screen
  - added spotlight mode for cursor on presentation screen
  - added controls on touchbar for hardware supporting it
  - switched to pkg distribution instead of dmg
  - now using major.minor.patch_level version scheme

  - moved project from bitbucket to heptapod
  - made the transition from deprecated QTMovie to AVFoundation for movie playback
  - fixed issues and crash on Mac OS X 10.15 (Catalina)
