Yes, it predates ChoX11 by many years. !PDF is far more than just xpdf 
with a RISC OS front-end. !PDF uses the core PDF processing library 
provided by xpdf to build a Draw file for the current PDF page, which 
it then displays in its own RISC OS GUI.

There is also PDFView, which is based on the !PDF work and uses a lot 
more of the original xpdf code: It can make use of xpdf's internal PDF 
rasterizer to create a fully rendered bitmap rather than a Drawfile, 
which is less useful for editing but supports much more advanced PDF 
features than the original !PDF Drawfile engine.
