The article says essentially that the Acroread 7 download is a
pre-release, and the link to the FTP directory quickly found its way
into the public as it was accidentally omitted to mark it as beta or
pre-release. Heise references an Adobe employee on this.

On, the Linux-version is offered (switch "taal" = language
to "Engels" (English)). The final version is supposed to be available in
the middle of this year.
