Announcing Adobe Reader X

Quote:
Today Adobe is announcing the new Acrobat X Family of Products which includes Adobe Reader X as well as Acrobat X Suite, Acrobat X Pro, and Acrobat X Standard. Reader X will be available for download next month and we want to give you a preview of the valuable new features you can expect.

Reader X continues to set the standard for reliably viewing, printing, and commenting on PDF documents. Plus its the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia. Building on this strong foundation, weve added new features in Reader X to help teams be more innovative and productive in their work. Some of these new features include the ability to:
  • View and interact with PDF files that contain an even wider variety of content types, including drawings, email messages, spreadsheets, videos, and other multimedia elements.
  • Make notes and share your feedback with others by marking up PDF documents using the Sticky Notes and Highlighter tools.
  • Choose reading mode to fit more content on the screen or two-up mode to view page spreads. Use keyboard shortcuts like print, zoom, and find within the browser.
  • Take advantage of the added security of Protected Mode in Reader, which helps ensure safer viewing of PDF files.
  • Directly access online services at Acrobat.com from within Reader X. Perform common tasks such as creating PDF files, securely sharing and storing documents, and screen-sharing.
  • Expanded PDF access via mobile devices with free Adobe Reader for Android, Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry Tablet OS
To learn more about the new features in Acrobat X and pre-order, check out the new site on Adobe.com. Stay tuned for an announcement about where you can download the new Reader X next month!

Nice to know, but I don't see any indication that there will be a x64 version. Therefore, I'll be sticking with PDF-XChange Viewer.

????????? This confuses me. My Acrobat Pro version 9 has x64 support. During installation I can see it copying over x64 files. Wouldn't the reader be the same?

The 32 bit Acrobat Reader works in Windows 7 64 bit. It's bloated and has its problems for some but its not a result of being 32 bit only. I use it quite often.

There is a big difference between Acrobat Pro (326 MB) and just the Reader (41 MB). If you look at the entire creative suite there are only a select few programs that are both 32 bit and 64 bit. Photoshop being one of them. Just because Acrobat is 64 bit doesn't necessarily mean the Reader will be too.

Also 64-bit support does not equate to 64-bit native.

Why would the lack of a native x64 PDF reader client be a deciding factor in which version to use? I know some PDF files can grow to be quite larger, but the OS platform isn't the bottleneck of speed here. Makes no sense to me.

I'm just a huge advocate of 64-bit software. That's why I want to stick with what I have now.

So am I...but only when there's a reason for it. It would hardly be my deciding factor in choosing a PDF reader. I would much rather have a lighter PDF client that's x86 than one that's x64 for the sake of being x64. The truth of the matter is, most software right now doesn't benefit from being x64, and that's why there's little to no need for it...like x64 web browsers.

I don't want anything to do with Adobe reader on my computer. There are better alternatives with a lot less bloat.
