Acrobat 7.0 - Planet PDF's Take

Karl De Abrew

Adobe is taking the Acrobat family mainstream with the version 7.0 release. While feature-for-feature Acrobat 6.0 launched with many more (and really surprised Planet PDF with its improvements), Acrobat 7.0 has launched with what is arguably the most important change to the Acrobat family since Reader was made free back in version 2.0: Acrobat 7.0 Professional users can now give any Adobe Reader (6.0 or 7.0) user permission to review and markup PDF documents. Planet PDF's CEO Karl De Abrew and the team give you our take on the latest Acrobat.

Adobe's Bob Wulff knows Acrobat and PDF -- inside and out

Kurt Foss

Adobe Acrobat and PDF officially turned 10 years of age this past Sunday, June 15 -- Father's Day, quite appropriately. Former Adobe CEO and co-founder John Warnock is widely and rightly credited as being the 'father of Acrobat and PDF.' In the years since the technology was publicly launched in mid-1993, the software and format have had a number of other mentors and guiding spirits who have continued to nurture and build on the original concept. One of those is Bob Wulff, who was lured by Warnock in a hallway encounter in 1990 to lend some technical assistance to the fledgling project 'for a couple weeks.' More than a dozen years later, Wulff has become not only one of the firm believers, but also one of the main keepers of the faith. We talked with him early this week to discuss the recent technological milestone and his role in it.

Kurt Foss

This Thursday morning at the Seybold PDF Summit in Amsterdam, Adobe's James C. King will deliver a keynote that reflects on the "twists and turns that Acrobat and PDF have taken" during the past decade. We caught up with King shortly before he caught a flight to Europe to talk about his upcoming talk, about some of his past presentations on related themes -- including a still-relevant 1998 primer on 'what's inside a PDF' -- and about his work as A Principal Scientist for Adobe Systems. Planet PDF is a co-sponsor of the Seybold PDF Summit.
