When is Adobe Acrobat XI Coming Out, and What’s New?

September 4th, 2012 Leave a comment

[UPDATE (April 2015) – The next major release of Adobe Acrobat – the new Acrobat DC – is now shipping… Download a free trial!]

It’s been a while now since Acrobat X was released, and considering Adobe usually runs on two-year release schedules for this product, give or take, what does this imply for when Acrobat 11 (Pro/Standard/Reader) will be coming out?

That’s the question of the season – along with, of course, whether the next version will be dubbed “Acrobat 11” or “Acrobat XI”…

What do you want to see in Acrobat 11?

At present there is precious little public information out there to answer these questions.  Our best estimate would be simply to go with the release dates for the past few revisions of Acrobat and then extrapolate.

Acrobat 8 came out on November 2, 2006 – Acrobat 9 arrived on June 25, 2008 – and Acrobat X began shipping on November 15th, 2010.  So a bit of basic math would project the Acrobat 11 release date to be some­time in mid to late November 2012.  Typically, Adobe would launch (or announce) the new product lineup a few weeks before that ship date.

But if you can’t wait until release day to see (and try) it, then register your interest in a possible Acrobat XI public pre-release program. There are no guarantees on being accepted if/when it opens, but it’s free and easy to sign up so it’s worth a try. The application is open for Acrobat, Adobe Reader, or both. Adobe’s goal with pre­release programs is to receive input on product usage and new features, plus learn about any early issues to help produce a tool that’s better for everyone.
