I've received an email implying that CS6 will be launched on April 26 (this is a London event) or at least the new features will be previewed at the event.
Anyone heard of a similar thing in the states?
CS6 is coming soon. Adobe said as much a long time ago pointing to a second quarter launch. Additionally, in case you hadn’t heard, you can buy CS5.5 now and get a free upgrade to CS6 when it ships.
There has been no specific date announced yet.
Yes this is now confirmed at 23 April : http://www.adobe.com/special/cs6/launch-event-desktop.html
I placed my order today for a 12 month subscription for the CS6 Creative Cloud. This costs £27.34 inc taxes per month in the UK. This is special price for existing customers. Adobe confirmed that the estimated availability is Monday 7 May.
