Adobe promises Acrobat 9 will transform the process of creating and sharing information

Adobe unveiled the newest version of its Acrobat software today. Adobe says that Acrobat 9 is a significant upgrade and promises it will transform the process of creating and sharing electronic documents.

Acrobat 9 adds native support for Flash technology that allows users to embed Flash Player compatible video and applications directly in PDF documents. To view the content, the PDF recipient only needs to have the Adobe Flash Player installed.

Another key feature of Acrobat 9 is the ability to unify multiple content types into a single document with PDF Portfolios. The PDF Portfolios allow the creation of PDFs containing documents, video, audio and 3D objects in one compressed PDF file.

The software also features templates that allow the integration of those types of media into a professional layout. The new software also adds live collaboration platform for live collaboration within a PDF document. The interactive content for PDF collaboration is enabled by working through Acrobat.com.

Adobe Acrobat 9 will be available in three versions for Windows systems including Acrobat 9 Pro Extended, Acrobat 9 Pro and Acrobat 9 Standard. Mac users only get Acrobat 9 Pro. All versions are expected to be available in July 2008 in English, French, German and Japanese languages. The full version of Acrobat 9 Pro Extended is going to retail for $699, Acrobat 9 Pro will sell for $449, and Acrobat 9 Standard will retail for $299.

Adobe doesn't say that the Yahoo ads that DailyTech reported in late 2007 would appear in PDF documents will now be offered. The online Acrobat documents will be the most likely spot for the ads to show up.

$Adobe$ comes up with so many new versions of their acrobat it makes me sick. Oh, you want the older cheaper version still? Guess what? We had the sales stopped, you must now buy the new version or go without. Thank you, please come again :)

Every software company does this.

And cheaper? Acrobat Standard has been the same price each release.
