So, why would Adobe do this? Tons of governments are forcing standards-based purchase requirements and Adobe wanted to make sure that its customers could continue choosing PDF and Acrobat as a standards-based way to send information around the network, they told me in a press call on Friday.

There has been work to do a new revision of this ISO standard using a later version of PDF. I hope Adobe still continue that work -- I suspect it would have somewhat better chances of being accepted.

Will 1.7 work on the Sony Reader? Will we all have to get new updates and readers?
