Mars for Adobe Acrobat 9

Adobe Acrobat 9 has just been announced and an update to the Mars plug-in with full Acrobat 9 compliance will be released towards the end of July or early August. Mars continues to be a stand-alone plug-in for Adobe Acrobat, but Acrobat 9 now has built-in knowledge of Mars and will redirect users to our Adobe Labs Mars page when a Mars file is encountered by someone who does not have the Mars plug-in installed.

Mars Tools Update

Over the past year, we started releasing some Mars tools on the Mars page on Adobe Labs. These tools in general were written for the Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) and as AIR developed over the course of last year and this year, we updated the tools to run with the latest version. All the tools are now AIR 1.0 compliant, so please check for updates if you are having problems with existing tools. We also might have some new ones up that you have not encountered previously.
