With the announcement of Acrobat 7 on November 15th, many developers and
customers have been asking me about plug-in support for the Macintosh
Apple Computer has strongly recommended that all product development be done
under Mach-O, instead of the older, deprecated PEF platform. As a result,
and because continuing to support PEF means that Adobe would have to write
substantial bridge code, Adobe has opted to move Acrobat to a fully
compliant Mach-O application.
This allows our developers and customers a forward-looking perspective on
the technology, allowing plug-ins to have maximum compatibility with future
versions of the Apple OS X.
So, for plug-in developers, this will require an update to their existing
Acrobat tools and solutions. Developers that have been participating in the
pre-release program have had access to documentation and samples to help
with this transition and are actively working on updating their offerings.
Upon the release of Acrobat 7, there will be multiple resources to assist
developers in this area:
Web Seminar -
Samples (in the Acrobat 7 SDK)
Thank you for your continued support,
