Adobe Digital Editions Beta 3 released

This one gets much tastier with every new release. Adobe Digital Editions is an alternative to Adobe Reader, supporting PDF as well as OEB, an XHTML-based format designed to represent dynamic content that can be easily adapted (i.e. reflowed) to different sized displays.

Changes in the third release of Digital Editions include:
  • Support for consumable rights for both printing and copying
  • Support for expiring books, both absolute and relative. Note that metered expiration is not supported.
  • Additional user interface (in the additional info dialog) to display the amount of consumable rights left for a book
  • Support for JBIG2 image encoding has been added. But note that JPEG2000 encoding is still not supported. Adobe intends to add that support in the next release.
  • Many bug fixes for DRM support
  • Many minor UI fixes
  • Some performance improvements

As a user, it's amazingly short to download -- takes seconds! I also like the fact that, once you've loaded a .pdf, it stays in your library so you don't have to go look for it on your hard drive.

Yeah, I like Adobe Digital Editions, but I couldn't help but notice all the effort on this beta release went to DRM strengthening. Hopefully, now that it's taken care of, they can get to some more "good stuff" in future releases.
