    Same here, Nancy.

     

    I actually upgraded my Design Suite CS4 Premium to CS5 for the Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator enhancements rather than Dreamweaver CS5 (which I still view as a modest upgrade).

    I agree completely that when it comes to the suite it has to be multiple programs.  And on this topic Adobe recently updated their Acrobat X FAQ page (the one program not part of CS5).  I'm not sure when, but it does give some insight.  Check out the bold highlighted terms:

     

    Original FAQ:

     

    When will Adobe Creative Suite 5 include Acrobat X Pro?

    Because Adobe Creative Suite 5 contains so many applications, it isn't always possible to update the entire suite edition when a single product release becomes available. Acrobat X Pro will be included in the next dot release of Creative Suite. Creative Suite customers who have purchased an Upgrade Plan, Gold Support, or Platnium Support will be notified automatically when the update is available.

     

    New FAQ: ( http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobatpro/faq.html )

     

     

    Because Adobe Creative Suite 5 contains so many applications, it isn't always possible to update the entire suite edition when a single product release becomes available. Acrobat X Pro will be included in the next version of Creative Suite once it is available. Creative Suite customers who have purchased an Upgrade Plan, Gold Support, or Platinum Support will be notified automatically when the update is available.

     

     

     

    So it looks like CS5.X is not going to happen and CS6 is what we are waiting for.  I just hope they fix the damn OSX bug with the color palette always showing black in Snow Leopard which has existed since CS5 was released, and yes I submitted bug reports and even had Randy confirm the bugs shortly after the release of CS5.

    I stopped buying the full boxed version of the Premium Design suite, and purchased the subscription edition instead.

    It's been great, I pay a monthly fee and receive free upgrades whenever Adobe releases a new version.

    So I'm looking forward to CS6.

    Adobe will announce the release of CS6 the day after you buy CS5.

    Out of interest: What happens to the software when you stop paying the monthly fee?

    Does it stop working?

     

    Just curious.

    Yes, I figured that there would be horror stories linked to Subscription editions.

     

    I, for one, would never consider using the Subscription edition because I don't trust big corporations like Adobe to handle problems well, theirs or mine, when I encounter them.

     

    "We apologize for the delay/outage/server glitch/whatever" never works with me.

     

    A Subscription edition to my mind could stop working at any time for whatever reason and render me unproductive here.

     

    The track record of Adobe Customer service has been notoriously poor for a long time. Glad I don't have to deal with them.

     

    I prefer a boxed DVD and a perpetual serial number (product activation notwithstanding).

     

    I'm just curious about the experience of those with Subscription editions when they hit problems and Adobe's responsiveness to fix them.

    When you stop paying the monthly fee you can't use any off the suite applications.

     

    I haven't had any problems with the subscription edition. We paid for two subscription editions which run on two of our mac's and both work fine.

    The only problem we have had is Adobe forgetting to bill us, but thats their problem, we end up will a free month or two.

    We have phoned and emailed them about this and they said they had fixed it, our subscription still works it just adobe doesn't get paid.

     

    I recommend if you are a small studio of maybe 2 or 3 the subscription edition is good. A 12 month subscription works out to the same as purchasing a boxed version, when a new version of the suite is available Adobe mails it out to you and you just keep paying your subscription fee.

     

    As a small design studio we use to purchase the boxed edition, we brought two boxed versions of CS3 and then about 4 months later CS4 came out. We didn't have another $3000 to purchase software, so we decided to purchase CS4 in the subscription edition. When CS5 came out Adobe sent us the new discs and we upgraded for free, which has been great as there is a lot of nice new tools and features in all of the applications, especially Dreamweaver with HTML5.

    It's good to hear that your experience is a happy one and that the Subscription licensing model works for you.

     

    I prefer to pay for a perpetual license upfront rather than ongoing, never ending monthly fees.

     

    Also, for reasons given above, I don't trust Adobe Customer Support enough to use it, I'm afraid.

    John when you do have a problem with subscription edition, the support team is very helpful.

    When I got the new CS5 disc's in the mail, there was no activation number, and the number on the letter they sent me didn't work.

     

    I emailed adobe support, and received an email back from Adobe Australia with the new key and everything worked fine.

    Since then any little problems I have had, I now have Subscription Managers email on file, and within an hour it has been fixed.

    The support is fine for Adobe subscription, it's just how you go about it.

    The boxed DVDs work just fine for me

    I had a problem with the boxed DVD version, I bought CS3 Master Collection (commercial license) when I installed it, it all worked fine and still does. The problem was with Adobe Premier when you start the application the splash screen says "ADOBE PREMIERE PRO CS3 EDUCATIONAL" which is on the same disk as the other applications which are commercial versions. Contacted Adobe through the instant messenger thing, confirmed that it was still the commercial version, and said was ok to use for commercial work and didn't need the disk replacing, but how unprofessional does it look when a client wants to go over some edits with you and you start up the application only for it to read Educational. Embarrassing.

    Doesn't matter - it's all speculation.  But these things are usually released as sets.

    To upgrade to CS6, you have to be on CS5 or CS5.5 - but you can get 20% off for now to get you to CS5 or CS5.5 and then get the upgrade discount when it is released. But no date for that.

    Yes, that's correct - though it may be new to some folks because for several years it was "three versions back"...  But Adobe's upgrade policy has just changed.

    Adobe announced long ago,  full releases will be every 2 years, with a step-up halfway through (as with 5.5).

    So figure out when cs5 was relesed and add two years for cs6.

     

    I think that would be around April 2011, in reference to a previous reply.

    Well, not too much has changed - nobody can really tell you for sure, but the estimates given above are probably still pretty accurate for CS6 sometime in the spring.

    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.

    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.
