2018.5 Migration Guide

PSPDFKit for Web 2018.5 adds image annotations to place arbitrary images on a PDF page, along with two new sidebar modes — one to show the table of contents (document outlines) of a PDF, and one that lists all annotations. It also includes a new option to create annotation variants with the new ink highlighter and arrow tools enabled by default, plus a whole lot more!
