    Announcement (January 16) - Folio Producer tools update

    Bob Bringhurst - Adobe Adobe Employee

      Digital Publishing Suite will be releasing new features and functionality Monday January 16 at 5:00 PM Pacific Coast time and Tuesday January 17 at noon. While the acrobat.com server is being updated, you may not be able to use the Folio Producer tools. New features include embedded overlays in slideshows, enhanced buttons that support sound/video actions, article relink, PDF pinch and zoom with all overlays, custom-created Adobe Content Viewer, and more. I'll post a more complete list after the update, or you can look at What's new in this release when help is updated.


      Again, note that there are two separate installers: one for the Folio Producer tools and one for the Folio Builder panel. If you created a custom viewer using a previous set of tools and don't want to update your viewer app, install only the Folio Builder panel to stay in sync with the updated web client. If you want to update all your tools, install the Folio Producer tools first, and then install the Folio Builder panel. For this release, updating the Folio Builder panel is recommended but not required. See Installing digital publishing tools.


      The v18 file format is a change from the previous file format, so any folio you create with the newest set of tools will not work with the current Adobe Content Viewer (2.2) or with custom viewer apps. Trying to open a folio results in a "Please update your app" message. However, if you have a Professional or Enterprise account, you can use the Viewer Builder to create a custom version of the Adobe Content Viewer so that you don't have to wait for Apple to approve. If you do not have a Pro or Enterprise account, you may want to wait until Apple approves the new viewer before you update your Folio Producer tools.
