The DjVu family of products includes DjVu Solo, DjVu Workgroup, DjVu Enterprise and the DjVu Software Development Kit (SDK).
New features delivered with the DjVu Enterprise 3.5 include an internationalized core, which is UTF-8 compliant and supports any character set.

This version of the SDK also adds Sun Solaris version 7 and 8 platform support.
