On my System 7 64 bit PC, I have the Adobe Acrobat XI Pro ver. 11.0.18 standalone program installed.
Today I got an alert from Adobe that an update has been downloaded and ready to install.
But when I clicked the "Details" link to read more about this 'update' on Adobe's "release notes" page at:
...I found that they are now talking about something called "Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC Continuous Track releases".
So I clicked on the link that said, "For information on how to choose the right track for your needs, visit here."
...which brought up a page of baffling jargon that sounds like this might 'update' my standalone version of Acrobat Pro into something that uses "Dynamic Document Cloud Product Tracks", transforming it more or less into a cloud--enabled, cloud-linked, cloud-managed program installation.
I don't intend to sound overly paranoid and crabby, but, really, all I want is the latest security updates and bug fixes for my standalone-licensed Acrobat XI Pro program. I don't particularly want to infest my application with new, unwanted Cloud features.
I am very concerned about the push on so many sides, these days, to drive users to the cloud (i.e., somebody else's computer) for everything - including program launching, document storage and file backup! What are people thinking?
