Adobe Revs Acrobat For Windows Vista And Office 2007

In case you missed it, Adobe Systems recently released an updated version of its Acrobat document creation software. The company has said that Acrobat 8.1 is built to be fully compatible with Vista and all Office 2007 applications. "Both PDF as a file format and Acrobat as an application are now 'first class citizens' in these environments," said Acrobat developer Lori DeFurio.

Among other things, Acrobat will now be able to take advantage of a Windows Vista feature that allows users to preview documents without actually opening them, DeFurio said. Professional and standard editions of the software are available as a free download for existing Acrobat users. Acrobat 8.0 shipped in November, prior to the January debut of Windows Vista and Office 2007, and as a result is not fully compatible with the products.
