This week in PDF has seen an PDF creator and validator add support for PDF/A-2, while a 3D vendor confirms its product's compatibility with Adobe Reader X.

First up, callas software has released a new version of its flagship product. callas pdfaPilot now offers supports PDF/A-2 with respect to the validation and conversion of documents. The latest version is also 64-bit enabled and now allows more file formats to be converted into PDF/A. Support for server-based splitting and merging and desktop-based batch processing of PDF files round out the major additions in this new release. More information can be found on the official callas website.

In other news, Visual Technology Services has confirmed that PDF3D Version 2 is compatible with the latest Adobe Reader X (version 10) including high performance PRC (Product Representation Compact) encoding for 3D models. The latest Adobe Reader X can open and display 3D PDF documents using the new "Protected Mode" for improved security, and enables markup commenting tools which can be saved and shared with others. Employing PDF3D geometric tolerance-based PRC encoding, PDF3D allows users to create 3D PDF documents that are compatible with Acrobat and Adobe Reader X.
