PDF – Open, ISO standard

Computers & Mobile

Interesting, so PDF is going to be an open ISO standard…. The Portable Document Format (PDF) 1.7 specification for AIIM, the Enterprise Content Management Association, for the purpose of publication by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) – there of course a lot of efforts going on with (open document format) too. MAKE sends out our PDFs over iTunes/RSS 2.0 so I feel a little bit better now that it’s going to open, we can’t send out Open Office docs in the same way (yet) – but this pretty good. Adobe’s announcement seems to be timed as Vista launches today (with included PDF-like XPS document Writer) – Link.

Here’s a video of our 3D PDF of how-to build a spun gun!
