Adobe Digital Editions 1.0 now available
Adobe Systems has released Adobe Digital Editions 1.0, a new software application built from the ground up for acquiring, managing and reading eBooks, digital newspapers, and other digital publications. The software is available as a free download for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh systems.

The company claims leading publishers, online retailers and channel partners have announced their support for Adobe Digital Editions. By using a new export feature built into Adobe InDesign CS3, publishers can create new Adobe Digital Editions-ready content, helping to significantly reduce cost and conversion time.

Adobe is planning to release versions for mobile platforms and reading devices, while Sony has committed to embed Adobe Digital Editions technology into its portable reader product line.

With native support for Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and XML-based publications, Adobe Digital Editions works seamlessly with more than 150,000 commercially published titles. Support for Adobe Flash software promises to enhance digital publications through the integration of rich audio and video.

The public beta of Adobe Digital Editions generated more than 300,000 downloads in less than six months. Adobe Digital Editions now enables users to annotate content through bookmarks, highlights and text notes. The library view offers advanced organization with multiple bookshelves. A new user interface enhances zooming and the overall reading experience, while support for the new IDPF Open Publication Standard (OPS) for XHTML-based re-flowable eBooks, guarantees a seamless viewing experience.

Adobe Digital Editions works in conjunction with Adobe Digital Editions Protection Technology (ADEPT), a new, hosted content protection service to guard publisher’s rights. ADEPT supports the company’s Adobe Content Server (ACS) technology and protects both PDF and reflow-centric OPS XML eBooks.

Purchase and lending business models include library lending, subscription, and ad-supported models.

Adobe Digital Editions is available as a free download for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh systems. Adobe Digital Editions for Linux platforms and localized versions in French, German, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are expected to be available in the second half of 2007.
