Adobe releases Acrobat Reader 9

Adobe has released a new version of Adobe Acrobat Professional and Acrobat Reader.

From the Adobe Acrobat Reader release email:
Adobe is pleased to announce the release of Adobe Reader 9 for our Tier 1 languages of English, French, German and Japanese. Other major languages will follow next month.

Highlights of Reader 9 release
This latest version adds new functionality for sharing ideas, creating PDF files, protecting information, and enhancing users’ overall experience. Take a look at just some of our new features:
  • Improved launch speeds: Experience enhanced general performance and reduced launch times.
  • PDF Portfolios: Easily navigate through diverse collections such as drawings, e-mails, spreadsheets, and videos—all in a single file.
  • Adobe Flash® software support: View rich media content such as Shockwave®, Flash, and streaming video files.
  • Create PDF files online, coauthor documents with others, upload and store files, including hosting live web meetings. (English version only)
Once a major new version such as this comes out, you have 6 months to update from your older Reader 8.
Current 9.0 file FTP download links (right click and save as): The above public links bypass the need to install the Adobe Download Manager for a Web browser and an optional toolbar.

This is one set of downloads that we will add to our Technician's Thumb Drive and also to our application install points on our managed networks.
