    Thanks for that article.   Meanwhile I have recently been told that Dreamweaver CS-6 could come out in April ’12, or not until this summer or so.

    Adobe has previously allowed those who purchase the "current" version of a product to receive a FREE upgrade if the NEW version is released within 30 days of purchase.  ....I just upgraded to CS5.5 last week because I noticed they said we were eligable for the free upgrade.

     

    With that in mind, and their recent showcase at NAB, I'd say it's a solid release by the end of this month or the first of next.

    ^_^

    Here's some more news Sharon... it's official — Adobe Creative Suite 6 will be launched on Monday, April 23rd, 2012 — so not too much longer to wait...

     

    After all the sneak peeks they slipped out in recent months, you know it had to be soon

    So what you are saying that on Monday, 23rd April 2012 at 10:00 hrs PST people would be able to pay and download the CS6. Is that correct?

    No. That's a common misconception.

     

    In Adobe-speak, "launch" means to announce the existence of a new product, including pricing, and showcase the (in Adobe's opinion) "must-have" new features and try to convince us that we simply must have it.

     

    (The irony is that Adobe's new "1-version-back" upgrade policy dictates that we have no choice but to upgrade to CS6 in order to be eligible for future upgrades.)

     

    There'll be a saturation marketing blitz, webinars, product reviews etc.

     

    The launch event is followed by shipping (actual availability of the final product) a few weeks later.

    If it works like it has for previous CS launches, then you would also be able to pre-order the new release, but not download it yet as John mentions...  Product availability and free trials would follow in May.

    I haven't been successful at locating from where I can download Dreamweaver CS-6 at Adobe.com today (the rumored release day).   Any advice?   If today's not the day, might anyone know when the release day will be, please?

    You will have to wait until May7th to lay your hands on this wonderful product.  In the meantime, people are buying CS 5.5 and they get a free copy of CS6.  If you already have Cs 5.5 then clearly there is no point.

     

    Good luck.

    In Adobe-speak, product launch means announcement only, Adobe showcases the new features and start the marketing blitz.

     

    Nothing to purchase, download or trial yet. Pre-ordering only.

    Actual shipping of the final product is May 7th.

    Perpetual licenses only.

     

    Why the delay for the Cloud subscriptions?

    Because the cloud is an extra component layered together with the traditional applications, there's more involved there and it wasn't ready at the same time.

    Ugh. I know it did say the 7th before and then it changed I'd download demos but then I might just have to redownload on Friday? I bought the cloud though cos i liked all the Features and hosting that comes along with it.

     

    Im still excited though!

    Yeah I found out you can license it after, so just use it as a trial for now and when cloud comes out you'll already have it :)

    I acknowledge that there may be more engineering work involved in bringing the Cloud to market but they could have easily set the shipping date to take that into account.

     

    It seems odd to me that Adobe marketing is taking the focus off perpetual licenses and pushing the Cloud as hard as possible.

     

    Then they make the perpetual products available first when so many people are hungry for the Cloud.

    Oh yeah I know, prolly cos bringing the cloud out will make a lot more in the end. Can't wait for it to launch, it seems like an all round good deal to me.

    I think the cloud is great, it's going to make small business a lot more scalable. Keeping the cost down to $79(?) to add another machine for a month makes for really easy addition of employees to cover workload. And $50 for another station as you ramp up and commit for longer is great. I'd like to see the non yearly cost be the same to just remove that extra layer of friction in decision making.

     

    I also think that adobe should, in the future, add a perpetual license lock option. So that as you are using your apps you have a way to impulse buy a perpetual license for a given product. It would especially be cool if that we at a decreasing cost. So that if you did it in the first month of your subscripton it would be more expensive, as you went on it would get less expense. When it hit your sweet spot or thought that you wanted to cancel because you were worried about revenue streams. You could pay extra to version lock your favorites that you really need and then come back and resume your subscription later to get your updates. They could probably figure out a pricing matrix where this would totally be in there favor and certain companies were just paying for version lock and never cancelling subscriptions.

     

    Its all about reducing friction to increase transactions and increase overall revenue.
