Adobe Systems has released Adobe Digital Editions 1.0, its new application for getting, managing and reading digital publications.
The software is available as a free download for the Mac and also for Windows systems.
Publishers can exploit the built-in export feature in order to create new Adobe Digital Editions-ready content. Versions of the software for mobile platforms and reading devices are also planned; Sony will embed the technology into its portable reader products.
The software provides native support for PDF and XML-based publications and readers can expect content to automatically re-flow, adapting to different screen sizes, Adobe says. It also has built-in support for Flash.
Feedback gathered during the trial period led Adobe to add the ability to annotate content through bookmarks, highlights and text notes. A library view lets readers organise their collections into multiple bookshelves.
