The upgrade is designed to offer native support for Adobe Flash technology.
Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) has unveiled Acrobat 9, designed to deliver native support for Adobe Flash technology, unify a wide range of content in rich PDF Portfolios, and offer access to real-time capabilities for co-navigating a PDF document with colleagues.
PDF Portfolios enable business professionals to assemble multiple media types, such as documents, video, audio, and even 3D objects, into one, compressed PDF file. Users can choose among several professional layouts or create their own to quickly integrate content, define navigation, and add branding.
By working with the newly launched suite of hosted services at Adobe.com, users can collaborate live within a PDF document. Acrobat 9 users can access Acrobat.com to store and share files, use it as a central location for collecting data, and to gather comments in a shared document review. The Acrobat 9 family consists of Acrobat 9 Standard, Acrobat 9 Pro, and the new Acrobat 9 Pro Extended software.
