I deleted a thread containing possible informations about unannounced products.
We all understand that software is not created the day before the release; it is normal for users to speculate about what the future might hold for our beloved sofware, (or the software that allows us to pay our bills); but this venue is not made for it: most software in production is being tested by users that signed a non-disclosure agreement. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-disclosure_agreement . They should not speak about it. Others do not know (or should not.)
Some sites might talk in detail about said products while being or not under a non-disclosure agreement, in both cases, somebody broke the law.
There might be special cases where they allowed to post results/images created by said software, but not name it, etc.
Some might even illegally post the software. Nothing can assure you that said software does not contain malware as well.
If you find such instances of unannounced software available for download, you may to report it at piracy at adobe dot com or by contacting Adobe employees that post here.
If you see signs of a possible breach of NDA, same thing, I can understand the genuine concern, but please do not post in this open forum.
Public betas of Adobe software, when they exist, are available at http://labs.adobe.com
Thanks for your understanding. Please don't go 1st amendment on me (or second )
"...ACR 6.6 Beta...", so clearly nobody is breaking anything @ dpreview... they are allowed (or not prohibited) to name it
Uh huh...I guess you don't learn very easy huh?
Guess this will need to be adjusted as well?
What is the point dooode?
You just like being a thorn in the side?
You having fun at somebody else's expense?
At some point you really need to find someplace else to play.
I thougth that I was clear in my post: there are other venues than this forum to report mentions of unannounced versions of a program.
You can look on the profiles of engineers here to report it, if you really feel the need to do so.
But if you know that a given site uses Camera Raw to compare cameras, and that a new camera being tested is not currently supported by ACR, if they do not state it was done with it, it would spark another conspiracy theory! By disclosing that they are using an unreleased version of ACR, they are maybe within their ethics/and ageement with Adobe. They could maybe do without stating the version, but then, somebody might also read too much into that. Michael Reichmann from Luminous-landscape in the past also stated when he was using a beta version, for the sake of openess with his readers.
Again, software is not created the day before of a release.
