Adobe has released a new version of the popular free PDF reader. With Adobe Reader 9, users can play Flash movies, Shockwave animation, and other rich media content without needing to open a third-party player. Adobe Reader 9 is supposed to load faster than its previous version 8.
Adobe had released the latest version of Acrobat 9 last month which supports videos and animation as well as custom-developed applications alongside maps that preserve data, 3D models, images, word processing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in common formats.
With this release (Reader 9), users will be able to view flash content directly from Reader without installing any other softwares.
