Last month when Adobe released Acrobat 8, they announced that Adobe Reader 8 is expected to be available in early December 2006.
Now that December is here, Acrobat Reader 8 help documentation is also available on the Adobe website now giving a strong hint that version 8.0 will be released very very soon.
Here are some of the new features in Adobe Reader 8 grabbed from the online help docs:
» Booklet printing - Print pages as a simple booklet, for example, 2-up, saddle-stitched.
» 2D Measurement tool enhancements - Measurement recalculated if start or end point moved. Measurements snap to lines, intersections, or corners.
» Commenting and markup enhancements - View and accurately place callout and cloud markups as you apply them.
Kate Moss, an Adobe Acrobat expert, adds that Adobe, for the first time, has included a Acrobat Reader version specifically for the newer Intel-based Macs.

John Dowdell just reminds us that it was on this day, exactly one year ago, that Adobe acquired Macromedia.
