Adobe's Plans for a New Generation of Software

Having completed the acquisition of Macromedia in December 2005, Adobe Systems now controls two of the de facto standards for electronic content -- the Portable Document Format (PDF) for electronic documents and the Flash SWF format used for web-based animations and interactive content.
