acrobat8box.jpgAdobe Systems released Adobe Acrobat 8 today. This new version of software enables users to create, editing and viewing PDF documents is the third Universal Application from Adobe we've noticed (after Flash Player 9 and Lightroom Beta). Acrobat 8 includes new tools to combine multiple PDFs, create PDF packages from multiple documents, collaborate on document reviews, preflight and fix problem documents, remotely display presentations and view other user's desktops, and more.

Adobe also announced a web-based service called Acrobat Connect. This collaborate service allows Acrobat users work together in "always on" meeting rooms through a web interface.


UniversalAcrobat 8 Professional for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X, and Acrobat 8 Standard for Windows, are immediately available in English, French, German, and Japanese language versions. Acrobat 8 Professional is priced at US$449 or US$159 upgrade from previous version. Acrobat 8 Standard is priced at US$229 or US$99 upgrade.

The free version of Adobe Reader 8 is expected to be available in early December 2006. Mac OS X users can create PDF documents directly through OS X's printing feature.
