Not certain what day they were actually released, but it appears CS4 downloads are now available for all products.

I agree with SB, I did not even pay alot of attention to the new Adobe products lately but still I did notice how fast they released new product versions.

End of the year till CS5 comes? I think that's a bit early, but I guess it will only take a month or 3 for them to release it. Or they will give it a new flashy name to make people think it's 100% new.

I think it really depends on why/how much you use the software. For instance I have Photoshop open and in use most of the day. The GPU offloading in CS4 will save me a huge chunk of time so I'm pretty happy that Adobe rolled out some updates and new features now instead of waiting several months.

Also the adobe roadmap says new releases every 18 months which is pretty much on par for most other software we use. Think how fast hardware changes. Imagine if you had a BlueRay drive but software was only released every 3 years you'd be stuck watching standard def for quite a while.

I'm kinda with graphixboy. at some point in the day there's usually some adobe product open and working on something. In fact as I type this I'm editing a training video on how to make homemade pasta on my other laptop with Premiere Pro. These actually came at a really good time cause I can evaluate these trials on this spare notebook while my other is in for service.

Are there any specific criteria I have to present, for them to verify me as a student?. I just e-mailed the customer service this morning about discount rate. I wonder if they would select students only from the America, or any continents.

*grumbles* -- Linux.

I hope Adobe reacts to everyone whining about Linux CS support like they did to AMD64 flash player support cries.

Realisticly, I don't see Adobe moving any of their flagship products to Linux because of licensing issues.

I think the majority of companies who produce commercial software are afraid of Linux because they feel releasing anything for use on Linux means giving it away for free.

I'm thinking the only reason Adobe has done anything with the flash player on linux is because the player itself is open source & bringing the player to more desktops just means a larger target audience for the people who buy their commercial offerings.


On a side-note, I was just going through my RSS feeds, it seems that Adobe has released previews for a good dozen or so products at Adobe Labs recently. :shock:

I guess this wasn't the most sought after version as CS3 was working really fine. Well, have to just wait and see for ourselves whats in store for us....

I just found out my upgrade is on the way (Web Premium). Looks like the new Flash has a bunch of cool features including IK/Bones, 3D transforms and a motion editor.

Hi,

I've just finished my experimental portfolio likwidlite.co.uk just in time for CS4 to come out. Typical. Is it worth re-evaluating the site once I upgrade to CS4? Are there going to be many benefits e.g. smaller files, smoother animation. Or should I just move onto new projects with CS4?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

CS4 won't make your site or projects better. You still have to use the software and design intelligently. CS4 may increase your productivity but it won't change the quality of your projects one bit.

Full non-beta version of Dreamweaver CS4 is out?

Might look into getting that as i still use Macromedia Dreamweaver MX which i imagine is different to the Adobe versions.

Actually Fireworks comes in really handy in conjunction with Dreamweaver's auto generated photogallery. It does the dirty work on generating the thumbnails for the gallery. Very slick and painless actually. But that's about the only thing I use it for at the moment also.

Oh, I'm not inferring that it's useless. I'm only intending it's useless to me. ;)

Funny I used to think I'd never use Fireworks either but lately we've been using it for prototyping and wireframing (clients love clickable wireframes) and its grown on me really quickly.
