We’ve been following the story closely on the upcoming next version of Adobe Acrobat (which could be called Acrobat 10, or possibly Acrobat X), including timing on possible release dates. A few weeks ago we wrote about the new Adobe Reader and Acrobat Prerelease Program that is open for public participation. This morning we received our invitation to join:
Subject: Invitation to join the Adobe Acrobat Prerelease Program

Date: Wed, Sep 08, 2010 6:04 am
As a valued Adobe Acrobat customer, you’re invited to participate in the exclusive Enterprise Engagement Program to be one of the first to experience the next version of Acrobat. By participating in the program, you’ll also gain valuable insights as we will reveal our vision and initiative toward the next generation of document exchange and collaboration.
Because the information being shared in the program is confidential, we would like you to accept the Acrobat Enterprise Prerelease Agreement. Once you have signed the agreement, you will be able to:
* Obtain future Acrobat initiatives
* Download and install the beta application
* Gain access to next release version product information
* Share your experiences by sending us valuable feedback
Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to be part of the future of document exchange and collaboration. It’s easy to get started.
If you have any issues or questions about the process, please contact our Adobe Prerelease coordinator.
Thank you for your support.

You need to digitally sign a licensing agreement that will grant you access “to install and use the Prerelease Software during the Term in a test environment on computers located on Licensee’s premises solely for the purpose of internal evaluation of the Prerelease Software and supplying Evaluation Feedback to Adobe.” There is no cost, but you do need to agree to non-disclosure regarding the Prerelease Software, as well as to cease its use within thirty days of Adobe’s first generally available commercial release.
If you don’t want to register your interest for the Acrobat 10 prerelease but would still like to give your feedback for the new version, feel free to share your thoughts at the Acrobat Feature Request forum. Or, you can enter a comment below…
