Seems most missed that in whatever Release Notes that was mentioned in.

It never would have occurred to me that a browser engine would also 
include its own embedded PDF renderer, separate from any that might be 
included in the OS (and IIRC Windows doesn't include one out of the box).

Providing a PDF renderer along with the rest of the HTML rendering with 
that browser engine is definitely something work noting in a bullet 
point somewhere.
