Adobe has unveiled its XI family of Acrobat PDF software (Acrobat XI Standard, Acrobat XI Pro and Reader XI), which now integrates with a pair of cloud services: FormsCentral for creating, distributing and analysing PDF and web forms; and EchoSign for managing electronic signatures.
Prominent features in the new Acrobat are much-improved PDF editing, better integration with Microsoft Office applications, easier access to cloud-based repositories such as SharePoint, Office 365 and Acrobat.com, plus IT-friendly enhancements to security and deployment (including virtualisation).
Acrobat XI, which will ship within 30 days according to Adobe, costs £378 (ex. VAT) for the Pro version (£111 to upgrade) and £255 for Standard (£163 to upgrade). Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers will get Acrobat Pro XI automatically, but you'll need additional subscriptions to FormsCentral and EchoSign to access the full functionality of these services.
