Software update: Acrobat Reader 5.0

Roda Freak pointed us to the Adobe site, which reports that a new version of the Acrobat Reader is available to download. In any case, the big step in version numbering promises a lot of improvement. After some searching I managed to find the changes:

  • Ability to save copies of files downloaded in Web browsers
  • Improved usability — drag-and-drop toolbar icons, dynamic thumbnails generation
  • When windows are resized, text in Tagged Adobe PDF files reflows to fit the window for better on-screen reading
  • Improved access to Web-hosted applications/online services
  • Support for Adobe Illustrator® 9.0 graphics that contain transparency Compatibility with previous versions of Acrobat Reader
  • Support for screen readers, offering accessibility to the visually impaired (Windows only)
  • Better display of text on LCD screens using Adobe CoolType technology
  • Version number 5.0
    Operating systems Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000
