Adobe Reader 8 released

Adobe Reader 8

A month ago, we mentioned the PDF creating software - Adobe Acrobat 8 was released and available in Universal Binary.

Today, Adobe released Adobe Reader 8 (previously known as Adobe Acrobat Reader). It's a Universal Application, (actually, they provide both PowerPC and Intel versions for Mac users.) The official application to read PDF documents is now available for Intel-based Mac users.
