The latest version of Google Chrome (8.0.552.215) includes an in-browser PDF reader (in addition to other features such as support for the upcoming Chrome Web Store). This new PDF reader is enabled by default and, while it is a competent viewer of PDFs, lacks the functionality of the Adobe Reader plug-in with regard to reader extended features and so forth. To re-enable the Adobe Reader plugin within Chrome, go to Options, click the Under the Hood Tab, click content settings, select plugins, click the disable individual plugins link, and click enable under the Adobe Reader Plugin (which will be disabled). This should successfully restore the Reader Functionality when viewing PDFs within Chrome.
There has been a great deal of discussion (at least around here) about what is actually encompassed by LiveCycle ES2.5, specificially regarding the software versions of each component.  Logicially, since LiveCycle ES2 is essentially version 9.0, it is expected that LiveCycle ES2.5 would be version 9.5.  Of course the complete answer is a little bit more complicated than that. 

For most of the components of LiveCycle ES2.5 the actual version of the components is, which is essentially LiveCycle ES2 updated to Service Pack 2.   LiveCycle Workbench and LiveCycle Mosaic should both be at version 9.5 and LiveCycle Data Services should be at version 3.1.  

The actual process of updating to LiveCycle ES2.5 basicially involves applying service pack 2 on the server and then installing LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 on developers desktops.

Additional information regarding LiveCycle ES2.5 is available from the Adobe website at
