We are pleased to announce that Reader Mobile SDK 11 (RMSDK) and Adobe Content Server 6 (ACS) integrated with the Readium SDK, which provides EPUB 3 support, are available from Adobe® and Datalogics®.
RMSDK 11 supports many of the EPUB 3 features. Major features include:
- Fixed layout: Useful for graphic novels, children’s and travel books, cookbooks and textbooks, all are rich with illustrations and photographs. The layout and design remain fixed no matter what the screen size is.
- MathML: Enables accurate display of mathematical formulas that can flow with the rest of the text.
- Audio, video and animation: Add rich features that allow eBooks to come to life for your readers by increasing their engagement with the content.
RMSDK 11 is now available for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. Datalogics is currently building EPUB 3 support into DL Reader through the use of RMSDK 11 and will have a release available for customers soon so that they can jumpstart their eBook reader development. This new support for EPUB 3 is in addition to the existing support for EPUB 2 and PDF files that has been the core of Adobe and Datalogics eBook offerings.
To check out the new EPUB 3 support, you can download Adobe Digital Editions 4 (ADE) today!

- Subscription: Direct support for the subscription models that are becoming popular in the eBook market
