CHICAGO -- Adobe announced PDF Print Engine 1.1 during Graph Expo in Chicago. Adobe PDF Print Engine manages PDF design and print workflows, Job Definition Format (JDF) workflows, variable data publishing, and more. The updated version supports Adobe Creative Suite 2 and Adobe Acrobat 8, Mac OS X, PDF 1.7, layer management in PDF documents, and improved color management support. Standards-based proofing workflows that include blended process and spot colors gain enhanced features, and output devices with extended color gamut support also get better support.
Adobe expects that Adobe PDF Print Engine 1.1 will be shipping in December.
