What I said about Acrobat 7 in Frascati,
17/11/2005:
• Is it a case of more glitz than substance?
• Are new versions introduced merely to handle new
versions of the PDF specification?
• Is there anything new of real use to JACoW?
Acrobat 8 is much the same

New releases are linked to new versions of the PDF standard,
but are launched before the standard is formally published.
Other software developers are either privy to the final draft
specification, or are playing catch-up after the release.
