LUNA 7.4 is a major release that introduces the LUNAversal Viewer, an alternative to the existing LUNA Viewer and a new addition to the LUNA Toolset. Based on an enhanced version of the LUNA Viewer API, the LUNAversal Viewer is made to work on mobile platforms and strives to meet accessibility requirements for a broad range of users. The release also includes a variety of minor features and bug fixes.
