One of the more public-facing projects is now launched; the resource index has been reorganized for ease of use and reference, with its contents now readily text-searchable. It provides a single page providing an index to all technical resources created by the PDF Association and should be the first stop for any PDF developer searching for technical information. In particular, a new dedicated page listing all ISO publications related to PDF has been created, which details every ISO publication (withdrawn and current) by the common PDF descriptive acronyms used by industry (such as PDF/A, PDF/X, PDF/UA, etc.)

Additionally, the members’ products and members’ services indices, as well as the case studies and white paper archives, previously located under the member menu, are now centralized under Resources.
