Today, we’re excited to announce the release of Digital Editions 1.7.2, which is now available for download on Adobe.com. This update adds compatibility for additional operating systems, including Microsoft Windows 7 (32- and 64 bit) and Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard, 32- and 64-bit). Compatibility with these additional operating systems allows readers to continue to acquire eBooks in the interoperable PDF and EPUB formats from thousands of online booksellers and libraries, and read these books wherever and whenever they like — especially across different screen and device types. The Digital Editions 1.7.2 release also contains updates that address other previous known issues with the application.
