LiveCycle ES2 now supports electronic signatures in Workspace (in addition to digital/PKI based signatures). The eSignature solution leverages the following features:

Ability to Route Arbitrary Content
Now you can route a flat pdf, .jpeg, .gif etc… for approval (basically anything that can be displayed in a web browser).
docvar
approveThis

Approval Container
A Workspace mode specifically designed and tailored for approval processes.

User Actions
Gives the LiveCycle developer full control over the buttons presented in the Workspace Chrome, and the order in which they appear. Also provides tighter integration with process routing via Destinations.
actionN

Approval Confirmation Dialog
Allows you to present a confirmation dialog with a custom EULA and inform the user that this is a binding agreement. To get this option in Workbench simply double click a defined User Action.
optIN
conf

IP Address Auditing
The ip address of the signer/approver is captured in the output of the Assign Task & Multiple Assign Task operations. This can be used to build an audit log.

Cheers,
_Seth
