Adobe will remove the "Send to FedEx Kinko's" service and functionality, currently available to US customers in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat. The versions of Adobe Reader and Acrobat that are scheduled to be released in October will not contain the feature. We are implementing these changes as quickly as we can. However, we need time to write and test the software. Adobe Reader and Acrobat are critical pieces of software for tens of millions of customers and we have to be sure the software we deliver is up to its usual quality.

The press release also talks about "Moving forward Adobe is setting up a Print Advisory Council to investigate how best to integrate third party print services into Adobe products, as more partners invest in online print infrastructures."

How about Autodesk making a button to publish to DWF? Maybe using this new service.

This was introduced in Adobe Acrobat 8.1 and in Adobe Reader 8.1 not long ago and there were a lot of complaints about it.
