I am happy to announce the release of Présentation.app 3.3.


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/


3.3 announce

The biggest code change introduced by this release consists in allowing to play the movies directly embedded in the slide.
Additionally, the inset live video can now be moved to any corner of the presentation view.

This release also adds some minor features/fixes (see detailed list of changes below), the most notable being a fix for bugs in the help text layout introduced by Apple's upgrade of TextKit, and a more consistant way to handle deletion of onscreen annotations for multi-frame pages.


The app is signed since 3.0, the installer is now notarized and stapled, so that it's easier to install.

This is only possible by buying a membership to the apple developer program, at the cost of 99 USD a year.
In order to cover this expense, I have setup a buymeacoffee page where any user can contribute a small amount:



Présentation most notable features are:

+ support for distant presentation/teaching
- inset of live video from the presenter
- white board and support for pen interaction
- support for more than 2 screens setups
- "spotlight", laser and large cursor mode on presentation screen

+ 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)
