Adobe this week announced the release of Adobe Reader 9.0 available for download on the company web site. The latest release includes an Acrobat software development kit free of charge.
Other notable enhancements within this latest version include giving users the ability to interact directly with Adobe Flash software, as Adobe Reader 9.0 natively displays rich media content.
Adobe Reader 9.0 also supports the new ISO 32000 for PDF as well as PDF/A, PDF/X, PDF/H and PDF/E along with XMP/RDF and ODBC.
Users can also search for single or multiple PDF files via a phrase within the document or search on specific words in page content, annotations, bookmarks, form fields or document metadata within any PDF file on a local computer.
The release is currently available for Windows and Macintosh operating systems and in English, French, German, and Japanese language versions. Additional platform and language support will follow, according to Adobe.
Adobe Reader 9.0 can be downloaded at the company’s web site.
