Adobe Reader 9.1 is available.

Download: http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.1/enu/AdbeRdr910_en_US.exe  (English version)


Other languages:   ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.1

 (scroll down to find and click on the appropriate language to get to the download link)


No details are currently available about the nature of this update, but most likely it fixes the recent security vulnerability ( http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/apsa09-01.html )

---------------------------------------------

Additional notes:  

1) Unless they change it later, I was NOT able to locate an "update ONLY" using the intenal updater in v9.0; rather, I had to download/install the complete 9.1 version.

2)  Adobe is planning to release corresponding security updates for Adobe Reader 7 and 8 by March 18th.
