Security bulletin

This release provides mitigations for vulnerabilities described in the security bulletin at http://www.adobe.com/go/apsb14-15.

Improvements

Items preceded by numbers are bug fixes.

Security

Security hardening and expanded sandbox support occurs with each release. Other changes include:

  • Updated blacklisted extensions at HKLM’s FeatureLockDown area at cDefaultLaunchURLPerms\tSchemePerms.
  • Create 64 bit plugin so the product can run IE 11 with Enhanced Protected Mode on in Win 7.
  • 3675383: Dashes in passwords are coded differently on Mac & Windows.
  • 3727486: Use HTTPS Yahoo Mail APIs instead of HTTP.
  • 3734124: 11.0.06 can’t print on some secure printers. For a work around, see http://www.canon-is.co.jp/support/product/nh/asd1-0014.html

Performance

Additional improvements in this area are targeted for future releases.

  • Improved scrolling speed in PDFs.
  • Increased the speed of page drawing/rendering.
  • Decreased energy consumption.
  • 3662374: Mac only: Energy Impact data is 7.5 and can’t be reduced when Preferences dialog is invoked.

Hi-DPI support

Acrobat and Reader now take advantage of Hi-DPI monitors and can scale the user interface to 200%. This is automatically enabled using system settings and can be customized by choosing Preferences > General > Scale for screen resolution. The value is set to Auto by default and can be forced to 100% or 200%. Other items such as the font size, menu items, and drop down lists are controlled by the user’s system control panel rather than application’s preferences.

Limitations:

  • Some parts of the user interface are not Hi-DPI aware. These include Flash-based views such as the Sign Pane and Tools Pane in Reader, the comment list in the Comment Pane, and a couple of dialogs such as the File > Properties > XMP dialog provided by XMP. These views may appear tiny or misaligned.
  • Up-scaling is limited to 200%.
  • Dialogs may not fit the screen if the screen resolution is lower than 2048x1536. If the height is lower than 1526, some dialogs may not completely fit the screen and the OK and CANCEL buttons may not be accessible.

11.0.07 scaling settings behave as follows:

  • Auto

    • For settings up to 150%, display the UI at 100%.
    • For settings 150% or higher, display the UI at 200%.
  • 100%

  • 200%
