Adobe has announced the upcoming release of LiveCycle ES Update 1. While this is a very important and interesting release, its focus is on overall improvements while adding a few new features along the way.
There are two significant new features that have been added to the LiveCycle platform, 3D PDF Generation & Content Management. The LiveCycle PDF Generator 3D ES addition allows server side creation of PDF documents with full 3D objects inside.. nothing new for PDF, but great for organisations that wish to automate this. LiveCycle Content Services ES is the result of a partnership with open source content management leaders Alfresco. This means that now LiveCycle has a perfect combination of eForms, Process Management & Content Management that is preintegrated out of the box. Need to trigger a process on content? Easy.. just call the LiveCycle Process in the CM web UI! Need to add Livecycle Rights Management to a PDF? Easy, just select the option!
Where do I start? Process Record and playback, Improved Dev / Stage & Prod migration workflows, Business Calendars, Out of Office, Acrobat 9 & Flex 3 support, lots of tweaks to LiveCycle Designer and more, more, more.
This new release has some great new functionality to offer and I can’t wait to share some of the samples I’ve been building with you all.. meanwhile read more in the press release.
