At this point almost every computer user on the planet knows about the PDF (Portable Document Format) file format. It was created and maintained by Adobe until this point. For CorelDRAW users, this has created some frustration as the file format would get updated and we would have to wait for new import/export filters to support the latest format.
Things are changing and this could help keep all software current with the latest format. The ISO (International Organization for Standardisation) has approved the PDF file format as an international document format standard. This means that Adobe no longer has complete control over the format. Instead there will be a ISO committee that determines any changes. Of course, Adobe will participate in the committee and we can only hope other software companies are also represented on that same committee.
Only time will tell, but I think this is a very good thing.
