The Acrobat User Community continues to grow and grow. I’d like to announce we’ve added a Dallas, TX chapter – which will hold its first meeting October 5th; and the Denver, CO chapter, holding its first meeting 2nd week of October. Additionally, we’ll have a Las Vegas chapter up and running before Adobe MAX. If you’re at Adobe MAX, please stop by the Acrobat Users booth to learn more about the community and Acrobat 8.

My first post on Acrobat 8 focused on our North American activities. I also want to point out there are activities going on around the world for users to get a closer look at the newest version. For our users in the UK – there is a very exciting tour starting October 17th in London (Regents Park) and moving to Birmingham, Leeds, Edinburgh, Bristol, and Manchester. This event will allow users to experience Acrobat 8 via a hands-on workshop.
I’ll post more world-wide activities later in the day.
Well… I’m sure you’ve heard by now… Adobe announced Acrobat 8 today. The Acrobat Family includes:
You might think – what is Acrobat Connect/Connect Professional? We’re rebranding our Macromedia Breeze line of products. We have a brand new offering – Acrobat Connect – which is a personal meeting room, and Breeze Meeting is now Acrobat Connect Professional.
Most of the reason I’ve been very quiet this summer is a result of my world-wide tour to educate our Adobe sales teams on these products. 18 cities and 460 attendees later, I’m ready for a vacation!
However, back to today’s announcement. So… where do you learn more about what’s there?
For our Acrobat Developers… there are 6 live events, where our new PDF Technical Evangelist, Joel Geraci, will be running workshops on what’s new and what’s changed with Acrobat & PDF for our developer audience. The first one will be October 3rd in Washington DC – registration is via AcrobatUsers.com
The additional 5 cities are part of our North American tour.
And last but not least, I’ll be hosting 3 live Acrobat Connect Professional meetings tomorrow (Tuesday, September 19th) to discuss Acrobat 8 with our user community. I’ll have guest speakers from the PDF community – Ted Padova, Leonard Rosenthol, Duff Johnson, and Thom Parker – each discussing the new product offering. No registration required.
Well.. that’s it for today… More tomorrow!
Sorry, folks. The update that I announced on Aug 22 has been pulled back from the web for a quick fix. There is a small issue affecting the import performance of large Pro/ENGINEER assemblies. If you have already installed the update, it’s fine to use – just wanted you to be aware of this issue. Thank you for your patience and I’ll update you when the patch has been re-posted.
