Today Adobe is announcing the new Acrobat X Family of Products which includes Adobe Reader X as well as Acrobat X Suite, Acrobat X Pro, and Acrobat X Standard. Reader X will be available for download next month and we want to give you a preview of the valuable new features you can expect.

Reader X continues to set the standard for reliably viewing, printing, and commenting on PDF documents. Plus it’s the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia. Building on this strong foundation, we’ve added new features in Reader X to help teams be more innovative and productive in their work.

... it’s the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with ... multimedia.

Oh! Yippee! Just what I always wanted (NOT!) a :huh: PDF reader that plays mp3s and DVDs.

Building on this strong foundation, we’ve added new features in Reader X to help teams be more innovative and productive in their work.

Also helps slow down that new Nehalem CPU to old P4 speeds.

It will suppoesdely also include new security features, such as sandboxing.

But on Ubuntu, the PDF reader (Evince) has already been sandboxed for a long time via AppArmor.

But better a bit late, than not at all. Adobe first blogged about their "Security Initiative" in May 2009 and "Adobe Reader Protected Mode" in July 2010.
