One of the important improvements in Acrobat and Reader X is that it’s easier to manage updates through support for Microsoft’s System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP). Using SCUP catalogs and Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), IT managers can manage the deployment of updates across their organization. Joel Geraci previewed this in his IT Matters blog in November where he also mentioned that our first SCUP catalogs would be available along with our first update.
Earlier this week, with the release of our 10.0.1 update, we included download locations for our first SCUP catalogs. You can find them in the release notes. We’ll also be including them in release notes for updates going forward.
There are separate SCUP catalogs for Acrobat X and Reader X. You can download them from the following URLs:
You’ll find instructions for deploying updates using SCUP and SCCM in our Enterprise Administration Guide which is available on our Enterprise Administration page.
Still hungry for more on SCUP and Acrobat and Reader X for IT? Joel and I will be talking about SCUP and other deployment improvements for Acrobat and Reader X in a free Tech Talk on February 22. Join us.
