Javelinm secure PDF reader for macOS

Javelinm PDF Reader is a free Apple macOS program, designed for older versions of the macOS operating system (10.7 to 10.9) that provides facilities for viewing standard PDF files, and for viewing encrypted (secure) versions of PDF files in formats (.drmz, .drmx) created for use with the Drumlin Digital Rights Management (DRM) service. The Javelinm PDF reader is very similar to Apple's Preview software when viewing standard PDF files and uses the same Apple-supplied PDF software library.

Most end users with recent versions of macOS should chose the latest macOS Javelin3 reader.
