PDF 1.7 Released as ISO Standard

Adobe’s PDF 1.7 format has been accepted by the International Standards Organization (ISO) as a new electronic document standard. This is great news for QuarkXPress users because QuarkXPress 8 imports and exports PDF 1.7 documents.

In July, the ISO released the full PDF 1.7 specification (known as ISO Standard 32000) for use in any software or system, and will be responsible for maintaining and developing future versions of the standard. More info: www.iso.org.
