    support for ISO 12647-2:2013 still missing

      Since some time the ISO standard 12647-2 for full color printing got an update. The newest one is ISO 12647-2:2013. In Europe several printers are busy to implement the new standard. To work with this new version of the standard, users of CC software should use also a new ICC profile. There are two new ICC files out now, PSO Coated v3 and PSO Uncoated v3 who could be found at www.eci.org. They are based on measurements made bij FOGRA. 

      Of course it would be great if Adobe can start to distribute them as well as part of the CC updates. And yes they should not change the characteristics as they did in the past. The now old fashioned Fogra Coated 39 had completely other characteristics if it comes to black generation then the ones made by FOGRA en distributed in Europe what could course problems if files using this different profiles are combined in the same print form. 

      Question is when will Adobe start to follow the new and only valid ISO Standard 12647-2:2013 and will Adobe come up with icc profiles that are really compatible this time?
