FlowPaper 3.0.3 Release Notes

Tuesday 1st August 2017

Summer is running at full throttle on the northern hemisphere and so are we down under to get you a new fresh build out as you come back from summer holidays! This release features major updates, particularly to the reflow viewer.

A new reflow template has been added and new supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms are in place to help with the reflowing of publications. Following this release, there will be multiple subsequent updates to the reflow functionality where we fine tune and adjust these algorithms in the next few months.
