Adobe Reader and Acrobat Version Xl (11.0) Released

by Carol~ Moderator - 10/16/12 10:03 AM

From the Adobe Reader Blog:

October 15, 2012

Adobe Reader XI is now available! Download Reader XI today at http://get.adobe.com/reader. With over one billion downloads, Adobe Reader continues its leadership as the global standard in PDF viewing and interaction.

New Functionality

Adobe Reader XI provides full commenting capabilities, including text, stamps, file attachments and audio recordings, as well as drawing markups, like lines, arrows, shapes and free-form annotations. Do you have a PDF form that needs attention? Well, Reader is now able to fill, sign, save and send your forms without requiring printing and mailing. And, of course, you can do this on the most recent and popular operating systems, OS X Mountain Lion and Windows 8, which includes our new "touch-mode" for an optimal tablet experience.

Mobile and the Cloud

Wherever you are, save your PDFs to Acrobat.com for access from anywhere, including your mobile devices via Adobe Reader for Android and iOS. Also, leverage Adobe Reader XI's integration with our cloud services, including creating PDF, exporting PDF files to Word and Excel, or sending your documents for signatures and full tracking via Adobe EchoSign.

Security

We really moved the needle with Protected Mode in Adobe Reader X. Now, we've enhanced Protected Mode in Adobe Reader XI to include data theft prevention capabilities. We've even added a new Protected View, which implements a separate desktop and winstation for the UI, providing an additional layer of defense. For high-risk environments, we've added the PDF Whitelisting Framework, which allows the selective enablement of JavaScript for both Windows and Mac OS, including support for certified documents. And, in the area of content security, we've expanded our support to elliptic curve cryptography.
