Why you will need to update on the MacIntosh

Adobe's Developer Evangelist, Lori DeFurio explains:

With the announcement of Acrobat 7 on November 15th (2004), many developers and customers have been asking me about plug-in support for the Macintosh platform.

Apple Computer has strongly recommended that all product development be done under Mach-O, instead of the older, deprecated PEF platform. As a result, and because continuing to support PEF means that Adobe would have to write substantial bridge code, Adobe has opted to move Acrobat to a fully compliant Mach-O application.

This allows our developers and customers a forward-looking perspective on the technology, allowing plug-ins to have maximum compatibility with future versions of the Apple OS X.

So, for plug-in developers, this will require an update to their existing Acrobat tools and solutions. Developers that have been participating in the pre-release program have had access to documentation and samples to help with this transition and are actively working on updating their offerings.

Thank you for your continued support,
