Adobe Releases Acrobat 9 in 3 Flavors

Adobe has released the latest version of its document creating software Acrobat for Windows and Mac platforms. Acrobat 9 for Windows and Mac includes support for not only Adobe Flash technology but can also embed multimedia files compatible with Adobe Flash Player to create rich PDF documents.

Acrobat 9 thus helps PDF portfolio creation through its ability to unify myriad multimedia content ranging from audio tracks to 3D models to customizable documents. By synchronizing Acrobat 9 with the recently launched public Beta, live collaboration within PDF documents is possible.

Acrobat 9 has been launched in three flavors, including Acrobat 9 Standard, Acrobat 9 Pro, and Acrobat 9 Pro Extended (which includes Adobe Presenter software). Pricing of Acrobat 9 is: Standard for $299 or $99 to upgrade; Pro for $449 or $159 to upgrade; and Pro Extended for $699 or $299 to upgrade.

In addition to Acrobat 9 having been released, Adobe is expected to release Adobe Reader 9 next month.
