Why is this Important?
The new Color Books in combination with PDFRender 2.0 will be more consistent with the Adobe Creative Suite Applications (Acrobat, PhotoShop, InDesign, Illustrator). The printed output will look more like the screen preview of illustrations viewed in Adobe applications.

All the older books are still available if you need them, for older jobs that were archived or for some specific needs.
