Adobe Releases Reader Version 8
Adobe on Tuesday released version 8 of its free Reader product for PDF files, which most notably adds collaboration features through a new "Start Meeting" button. Adobe has also redesigned Reader's interface and added a loupe for zooming in on specific areas of a document.
Other features in Reader 8 include integration with Adobe LiveCycle Policy Server and the new Adobe Online Services Document Center, which enables users to digitally sign PDF files. Adobe has even built in a basic RSS reader into version 8, along with new review and markup tools. The full version of Adobe Acrobat 8 went on sale in November. Adobe Reader 8 is available for download for Windows XP and Vista, with a separate version for Windows 2000.
