I met the lead GNUPDF developer last November at FSCONS and he said that the 
project would achieve full read and write ISO PDF compliance. He also said 
that the libraries that they would develop would likely be used by other 
existing FS PDF software as they would be more complete.

However I haven't heard anything more about GNUPDF since then, and their 
website has not been updated in nearly a year.

Its worth bearing in mind however that for possibly 90% of scenarios existing 
FS PDF readers are capable. Acrobat reader may not achieve much more than this 
for all I know, and as I have already mentioned, they have problems of their 

So long as we are only comparing readers, its also worth bearing in mind that 
some FS PDF readers have original features not implemented by Adobe.
