Adobe Reader 8.1.2 ships
Adobe has released Adobe Reader 8.1.2, an update to the PDF viewing software that opens as well as interacts with PDF documents. The application allows users to view, search, digitally sign, verify, print, and collaborate on Adobe PDF files. The latest revision addresses numerous workflow issues and security vulnerabilities while providing more stability, according to Adobe. Adobe Reader 8.1.2 is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later.
Specific issues resolved with the update include recognition of blank space for accessibility, correct search functionality for dynamic forms using direct rendering, proper behavior for protected expandable fields in dynamic forms, and correct page flow when orientation changes.
