Acrobat and Reader support ending for Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7
Announcement for those of you using Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and 10.7 (Lion): Acrobat and Reader will be ending support for these operating systems after the next quarterly update, expected in May 2015. For the best and most secure experience of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader, we recommend using the software on a supported operating system: OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.9 (Mavericks), or 10.10 (Yosemite).
What does this mean for you?
You can continue to install and use Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader software on Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7. However, Adobe will no longer test releases or patches for these operating systems, nor will any bugs specific to these operating systems be addressed. Furthermore, any future security updates or patches won’t be applicable to you. If you are entitled to support, Adobe will continue to support you, unless the problem you’re experiencing is isolated to Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7.
If you have any questions about this change, you can post them to Adobe Acrobat forum for the community of users and experts or comment below.
Also, for our Creative Cloud members, the next major release of Creative Cloud will require Mac OS X 10.9 or higher. If you’re running an older version of Mac OS X, such as 10.7 or 10.8, you can continue to run and install current and previous versions of the Creative Cloud applications, but will not be able to install or run the next major release of the Creative Cloud desktop applications until you upgrade to a supported version of OS X.
