Welcome to JavaRanch.

Acrobat performs this check itself, and will alert the user if a file requires a newer version. What would the check in your code accomplish that Acrobat's check doesn't?

If the application tries to cater to a wide range of users, I'd advise not to use the latest PDF features - maybe stay two versions behind the latest released version.

PDF has supported colors for ages, so it's not a version issue.

Maybe the browser was set to save PDFs to disk instead of opening them?
