Adobe releases Adobe Reader 8

Spread the love

And worth the upgrade. The following came yesterday from Business Wire:


Free Software Enables Greater Customization, Streamlines Trusted PDF Interactions and Facilitates Online Collaboration

Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced that Adobe® Reader® 8 software is available as a free download. Adobe Reader 8 enables trusted information exchange between enterprises, government agencies, constituents and consumers who view, print, search, digitally sign and collaborate with PDF files. Adobe Reader 8 also features a new “Start Meeting” button that launches Adobe Acrobat® Connect™ (see separate press release issued today), an Adobe-hosted software service that provides real-time online collaboration through Adobe Flash® Player.

Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player, installed on over 700 million connected PCs and devices worldwide, engage people across a wide array of different channels, enabling collaboration and delivering richer, more interactive experiences that work consistently across multiple platforms.

It’s a large install, especially if you download the free Adobe image viewer. But most certainly worth the time to upgrade for the reader, always a reliable product.
