Adobe Rolls Out Integrated PDF/Flash Products:

"One test of success in any merger or acquisition is how well the corporate cultures of the merging companies mesh together. While the jury is still out on the meshing of Adobe and Macromedia’s corporate cultures, Adobe seems to be passing another vital test—integrating Macromedia technologies into newly minted Adobe products that add additional value to the general user. Two particular products, Captivate 2 and Acrobat 8, are leading the integration charge."

Adobe Boosts Market Position With Acrobat 8 Capabilities:

"Acrobat 8 expands Acrobat's historic role as a creative desktop tool player with an archive format and universal distribution medium via Acrobat, Adobe Reader and PDF. New capabilities underscore Adobe’s role in a larger business context, providing a complete value chain from content creation through delivery. While Acrobat Connect Professional only offers limited support for server-based document collaboration, PDF files are now much more interactive, building collaboration into the document. Acrobat 8 advances Adobe’s position to compete in the collaborative document assembly and review market with a range of tools suited to professional and casual users. Since PDF files do not require a server or specific platform or operating system to support collaboration and sharing, the Acrobat upgrades are meaningful even in isolation. In concert, they may allow firms to engage partners and customers without expensive infrastructure investments."

Will Acrobat Connect be a conversation stopper?:

"Interactive is a word with more meanings than it is safe to translate – and Adobe is stepping right into Babel Fish territory by putting web conferencing " for all" onto Acrobat, via Acrobat Connect. The Babel fish, a fictional translator in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, was blamed for causing more and bloodier wars because it removed barriers to communication."

Review: Can Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional Compete In Workflow Space?: CRN

Acrobat 8 now supports form saves and digital signatures for Reader extensions, with capabilities that allow users to save forms on local hard drives without a LiveCycle plug-in.

The new saving feature eliminates the need to print PDF forms or e-mail forms immediately after filling them. As forms are distributed via e-mail, new workflow capabilities automatically merge results into a PDF package file. "

Adobe Delivers Updated CAD Translators for Acrobat 3D Software

"Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the immediate availability of a free download for Adobe® Acrobat® 3D software that delivers updated 3D computer-aided design (CAD) translators. As a result, Acrobat 3D now supports many of the latest versions of major CAD file formats, enabling users to easily convert 3D models from those formats to more secure and widely adopted PDF—regardless of whether they have CAD software. The updated translators leverage technology Adobe gained as part of its April 2006 acquisition of privately held Trade & Technologies France (TTF), a company whose technology is used by many leading CAD, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) developers.

“Acrobat 3D and PDF continue to gain significant momentum in the manufacturing and architecture, engineering and construction industries, as well as praise from customers and influencers who see the technology as a means for addressing long-standing communication and collaboration issues by leveraging a ubiquitous, trusted file format,” said Tom Hale, senior vice president, Knowledge Worker Business Unit at Adobe. “Our acquisition of TTF was another example of Adobe’s commitment to this market and to continually build on the fundamental strengths of Acrobat 3D and PDF. Along with a highly accurate, compact file format that will be part of the forthcoming Acrobat 3D Version 8, TTF provided us with the expertise and technology to quickly respond to the rapidly evolving CAD landscape.”"

Adobe to Release PDF for Industry Standardization

"Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced that it intends to release the full Portable Document Format (PDF) 1.7 specification to AIIM, the Enterprise Content Management Association, for the purpose of publication by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

PDF has become a de facto global standard for more secure and dependable information exchange since Adobe published the complete PDF specification in 1993. Both government and private industry have come to rely on PDF for the volumes of electronic records that need to be more securely and reliably shared, managed, and in some cases preserved for generations. Since 1995 Adobe has participated in various working groups that develop technical specifications for publication by ISO and worked within the ISO process to deliver specialized subsets of PDF as standards for specific industries and functions. Today, PDF for Archive (PDF/A) and PDF for Exchange (PDF/X) are ISO standards, and PDF for Engineering (PDF/E) and PDF for Universal Access (PDF/UA) are proposed standards. Additionally, PDF for Healthcare (PDF/H) is an AIIM proposed Best Practice Guide. AIIM serves as the administrator for PDF/A, PDF/E, PDF/UA and PDF/H."
