Hi all

I see 21.005.20054 is available on adobe site yet i can only see 21.6.20048 in my catalog
Is this due to being a optional update, is it possible to get this update as it resolved a issue were seeing with adobe?

We're dubious of this release, because it's not announced in the way it usually is by Adobe. Adobe generally announce new releases at the page: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/release-note/release-notes-acrobat-reader.html#Acrobat

Even the file downloaded from here is 21.005.20048: https://get.adobe.com/reader/

We'll keep an eye on this and update it if Adobe update their formal release page.


When searching for an update through Adobe Reader there is none found if you use version 21.005.20048, so the update still seems to be in the testing phase.

21.005.20048 is the version that's in our catalogue today. 21.005.20054 is the version in question.


Adobe is pretty much a dumpster fire for their releases and support.  I've signed up for their notification on releases and 1/4 of the time PatchMyPC notifies us before Adobe notifies.  21.005.20060 for example, not a security update, but no notification from Adobe to date.
