Early peek at Adobe Reader 7 for Linux

A download of the PDF reader update is out on the Web--but it's not the final version, Adobe says.

A new Linux version of Adobe Systems' Reader software for viewing Portable Document Format, or PDF, files is available on the company's FTP download site--but it's not the final product, spokeswoman Rebecca Michals said late Tuesday. Instead, the software is a prerelease version made available to help people in the Netherlands meet tax deadlines, she said.

"The shipping version is not yet available," she said. Adobe began beta-testing Reader 7 for Linux in January, restoring support for the open-source operating system that the company had bypassed with Reader 6.
