PDF format released to the ISO

Apple Insider reports that Adobe has relase their PDF format to the International Standards Organisation which will now take control of the format as an industry standard.

The ISO said the new standard, ISO 32000-1, Document management – Portable document format – Part 1: PDF 1.7, is based on the PDF version 1.7 developed by Adobe. It supplies the essential information needed by developers who write software that reads, creates, or otherwise interprets PDF files.

Adobe’s cheif technology officer Kevin Lynch said:

“By releasing the full PDF specification for ISO standardization, we are reinforcing our commitment to openness.”

Look like we can look forward to many more native PDF applications popping up.
