Adobe Acrobat, Reader v8.1

Adobe today released an update to its professional PDF solution: Acrobat Pro 8.1 brings Flash MPP support on Mac OS X for improved support for Adobe Flash files with multimedia. In addition, the company said that the InDesign Plug-In update now supports communication with Adobe InDesign for Creative Suite 3 and that the update brings other stability improvements. Adobe said that multilingual update can be applied to English, French, German, and Japanese versions of Acrobat 8 Professional. Adobe also released Acrobat Reader 8.1, which now includes a "Send to FedEx Kinko's" option within the File Menu as well as a button on the main toolbar (represented by the FedEx Kinko's beacon icon)--as part of its newly announced collaboration to extend the reach of FedEx Kinko's Print Online application. In addition, the update to the free PDF Reader 8.1 software brings added support for Acrobat 8 3D, security improvements, and other bug fixes.

    Still not Universal!

    You'd think after the backlash against the product from the IT sphere after they released separate Intel/PPC binaries with Reader 8.0, Adobe would've learned their lesson.

    What the heck are they thinking?

    Hopefully the dock-icon-bounce is fixed. Most annoying bug in a shipping adobe app ever I think.

    Adobe is a monopoly

    thinking is no longer necessary

    just open your wallet up wider

    and get swallowed up by the Adobe monster

    Still the bounce

    Nope, 8.1 does not fix the bouncing icon. Boo.
