As has been announced on the RC bug announcements for the last 60+
weeks, it's built against zlib which apparently violates policy.
Since Adobe didn't fix it upstream, Acroread gets the boot. This is a
good thing, acroread sucked, was non-free, and Adobe ignored it's
problems. Essentially, it got booted for exactly the same reasons
people don't choose proprietary software.
xpdf, kghostview, and many others can read PDF documents as well or
(usually) way better than acroread. Use those instead, you'll wonder
why you lamented acroread's disappearance.
