Planned changes so far kept quiet
Adobe will unveil Acrobat 10 on October 18th, a teaser image from the company reveals. The software is Adobe's primary PDF tool, aimed mostly at businesses, allowing people to create and distribute documents in the format. Little information has emerged on the upgrade's planned features; most of the company's efforts in recent months have revolved around Flash and Creative Suite 5.
The company is for instance developing a 64-bit version of Flash for Mac and Windows systems, and recently debuted the AIR platform on Android devices. Adobe has also been resurrecting work on Flash-to-iOS cross-compiling, which was halted until Apple recently reversed course on an App Store policy banning third-party development tools. The technology may be essential for the growth of digital magazines and newspapers, since companies have expressed interested in developing for the iPad and Android tablets simultaneously.
