Acrobat 9, updated CS3

Adobe has released Acrobat 9, the latest version of its PDF document tool. Updates to the software primarily revolve around Flash support, as users can now insert videos and applications built with the technology directly into a document. Users can also however take advantage of a new PDF Portfolios option, which gathers multiple filetypes, including audio and 3D objects, into a compressed PDF file using custom or preset layouts.

The software is shipping in Standard, Pro, and Pro Extended versions. Pro enables a variety of features, such as document validation and the custom Portfolio templates, while Pro Extended adds more conversion options and a bundled copy of Presenter, which helps turn PowerPoint presentations into PDF files. Each version of Acrobat is priced at $300, $450 and $700, respectively.

Adobe has additionally updated the Design Standard, Design Premium, Web Premium and Master Collection editions of the Creative Suite to v3.3, which now includes Acrobat 9 Pro, along with Fireworks CS3 in the case of Design Premium.

    Acrobat Pro Extended

    One might have thought that the Macintosh News Network might have noted in their report on the new suites of Acrobat products that one of them, Acrobat Pro Extended, was only available for Windows.

    That might be relevant, somehow, to Macintosh users.

    Acrobat 9 trial available

    I got my email today announcing the availability of Acrobat 9 Pro and Extended. After logging on and getting my download email, I noticed that all trial applications are only available for Windows. We'll see how long it takes to get a Mac trial version.
