News Flash: Acrobat X Portfolio SDK is Here!

At today’s MAX pre-conference lab session we introduced a beta version of the Adobe Acrobat Portfolio SDK to provide new developer tools for Flash Builder 4 and Flash Professional CS5 environments. Using these tools, developers can now leverage their Flex and ActionScript programming skills to create customized PDF Portfolio Layouts. Flash Pro designers can use their existing skill set to design custom themes to create highly branded “skins” for the Portfolio Layouts in Acrobat X.

Read an in-depth blog post from Joel Geraci, Acrobat Technical Evangelist, on how the Flash community can target their client deliverables to the PDF ecosystem and Adobe Reader platform. Check out Joels’ post here and how to access the SDK from Adobe Labs today.
