ABBYY FineReader Engine 11 for Mac - Release 6 Update 1
Release date: Date: 27 May 2016 (public release)
Part #: 1161/25
Build #: 126.96.36.1991187
This release is a patch to the FineReader Engine 11 R6 release.
It provides a new heap manager for better speed optimization.
The ‘heap’ is very common memory management paradigm in programming. For example, a good definition is provided here: “A very flexible storage allocation mechanism is heap allocation. Any number of data objects can be allocated and freed in a memory pool, called a heap. Heap allocation is enormously popular. Almost all non-trivial Java and C programs use new or malloc.”
We substituted the code used by one after Doug Lea. It turned out to be more efficient in case many small memory chunks are allocated. A speed up was gained for document analysis, recognition, and sometimes for synthesis plus PDF export steps. The speed up is not consistent and stable since it highly depends on an image/document complexity, available memory, and recognition route.
