Adobe has announced Acrobat 7.0.

The product family lets users assemble documents from multiple sources, create intelligent forms, and collaborate on projects.

Three products are available now, though the entry-level product is Windows-only, most likely because of the powerful PDF-handling application (Preview) within Mac OS X.

Adobe also announced the immediate availability of Adobe Reader 7.0, its free client software to view and print PDFs. The application's features have been boosted with the addition of built-in Yahoo search and 3D object support. It's available for download.

Acrobat 7.0 Professional is described (by Adobe) as: "Providing more advanced control over engineering and design documents for technical and creative workgroups that rely on specialized software, including computer-aided design applications and publishing solutions such as Adobe Creative Suite."

Acrobat 7.0 Standard offers some functionality, while Acrobat Elements (Windows only) is a PDF creation application.
