Adobe Acrobat: What’s New?

  • 22 July 2019

Adobe Acrobat version 11, aka version XI, was released back in 2012 and with it came some substantial improvements such as touch friendly capabilities for mobile devices, exporting PDFs to PowerPoint and the start of integrated cloud services. Acrobat 11 was a big seller and many customer are still happily using it across their enterprise. But do you know that Acrobat 11 has been End of Support (EOS) for more than 18 months now?

What does End of Support mean?

End of support means that Adobe no longer provides technical support, including product and/or security updates, for all derivatives of a product or product version (e.g., localised versions, minor upgrades, operating systems, dot and double-dot releases, and connector products).

What to do next?
