Acrobat flips to 2.0

Send Article to a Friend

Acrobat flips to 2.0 -- In a welcome change from Acrobat 1.0, Adobe has released a free viewer for Acrobat 2.0, enabling users to view, navigate, and print any PDF (Portable Document Format) file. This should improve Acrobat's popularity significantly, although documents in Acrobat format are still necessary, and that requires buying commercial software. The most interesting feature promised for Acrobat 2.0 is resolution of URLs so an Acrobat link can go out over the Internet to make the connection. Versions of 2.0 are available for Mac and Windows, and 1.0 is available for DOS and Unix. [ACE]
