End of support for Acrobat/Reader XI

On October 15, 2017 Adobe discontinued the support of Adobe Acrobat XI und Adobe Reader XI. Adobe only supports during five years. That means that Adobe no longer provides technical support, including product and/or security updates, for this version of the application.

However the software can still be used!

According to my survey last year Acrobat XI is the most used Acrobat version by my readers. This is also confirmed by the feedback of the attendees of my seminars.


End of support for Acrobat X

Adobe annonces that the support for Adobe Acrobat X and Adobe Reader X will end on November 15th, 2015. After that Adobe will no longer provide technical support and there will also be no bug fixes and security updates anymore.

IMHO that’s not a big issue since Acrobat X is a version to forget anyway. Beside a new (but not better) user interface there are no new features for print production in AX – just new bugs. Most users stayed with Acrobat 9 or upgraded to Acrobat XI.
