Adobe's PDF now an ISO standard

Filed under
Misc

At the end of January 2007, Adobe submitted its Portable Document Format (PDF) to the ISO. Now, as the year winds to a close, Adobe has announced that PDF 1.7 has been approved by the ISO and will become the ISO 32000 standard (DIS). According to a blog post by Adobe PDF architect and senior principal scientist Jim King, the standard was approved by a vote of 13:1, with one country (Russia) abstaining and one country (France) voting against.

Although previous subsets of PDF (specifically PDF/Archive and PDF/Exchange) have been considered by the ISO, the approval of the entire document format as a new standard will impact its development in the future. From this point forward, the ISO, rather than Adobe, is in charge of the PDF specification and any changes that are incorporated into it.
