Adobe has released Adobe Reader for Mac OS X 6.0, supporting its release of Acrobat 6.0, which is shipping now.

Adobe Reader X 6.0 is free. It lets users view and print PDF files, and allows them to fill in PDF-based forms online.

New features to the software - which was released this morning - include the capacity to play QuickTime, Flash and Real Media content that is embedded in an Adobe PDF file. The Windows version of the product adds similar support for Windows Media files.

The product also preserves document layers in Adobe PDF files. The 21MB download will be made available through Adobe's Web site.
