Compatibility Advisory Regarding Adobe Reader plug-in and Acrobat plug-in with Safari 5.1

With today’s release of the Safari 5.1 browser, we wanted to alert you of some compatibility issues and workarounds that relate to Adobe Reader and Acrobat. Adobe Reader and Acrobat are not compatible with the Safari 5.1 browser, announced today. Adobe Reader and Acrobat will continue to work as standalone applications on Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.6, and will render PDF documents outside of the browser, but applications that require the Adobe Reader or Acrobat plug-in to render PDF documents in the Safari browser will be affected. For Adobe Reader, Acrobat, and LiveCycle customers who utilize functionality like forms, digital signatures, portfolios, guides, 3D, extended PDFs and rights management, and who require the Adobe Reader or Acrobat plug-in to render PDF documents in the Safari browser, we recommend that you continue to use Safari 5.0.x and Mac OS X 10.6.

As we continue to investigate this, we will be sure to keep you updated. Currently, we expect to provide a better workaround for this issue before the end of 2011.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Every day, thousands of overnight envelopes criss-cross the globe, many containing critical business documents that require someone’s signature. Adobe’s document solutions have historically helped organizations turn inefficient, paper-based workflows – like overnight envelopes – into streamlined electronic ones.  Today, we’re adding a key component to our document exchange services platform that addresses the need to provide better customer experiences by significantly reducing the time, cost, and complexity associated with getting a document signed.

Adobe announced today that we have acquired EchoSign, the leading Web-based provider of electronic signatures and signature automation. EchoSign’s pioneering electronic signature solution will be a key component of Adobe’s document exchange services platform for reliably exchanging documents for universal access, review and approval. It will be integrated with Adobe’s other document services including SendNow for managed file transfer, FormsCentral for form creation and CreatePDF for online PDF creation, enabling customers to significantly accelerate sales cycles, improve tracking and centralize the management of signed agreements through a simple to use cloud service.

With just one click, the EchoSign electronic signature solution automates the entire signature process from the request for signature to the distribution and execution of the form or agreement. The EchoSign solution provides a secure subscription-based service to individuals, SMBs and enterprise customers, enabling real-time visibility into the signature process and automatically storing and managing all signed documents. What’s more, there’s nothing to download or install.

The EchoSign service includes a rich set of APIs for incorporation with company-specific solutions to improve the process of sending, tracking and signing documents online. The EchoSign service integrates with partner solutions, such as and NetSuite.

We think that bringing together EchoSign’s ease of use with Adobe’s brand, reach, and trust in the document space makes for a perfect match. Our aim is to make electronic signatures the common way for people to sign documents.
