As a plus there is a function for describing an arc of a circle, which 
should have some utility in constructing pie charts, and a spiral 
creator.  The spiral creator however doesn't have any apparent feature 
to modify the number of turns, the width of the line etc. Hopefully 
this will be filled in later.  Also, the icon for creating a "Submit" 
button on a pdf has disappeared from the (ever longer) button bar.  
Maybe it is hidden elsewhere. 

A suggestion. Since the icon bar is stretching out to improbable 
lengths perhaps a second bar down the side could be used for graphic 
functions like shape, bezier curve arc of circle, spiral and the like, 
similar to Inkscape.  

It still creates PDF X/1-a:2001 files which is its major new feature 
for those of us who do print books.
