Sure enough, I don't know how this could get past any beta tester ad so they all must have seen this and why they did not make a big enough stink
is beyond me.
There is another annoying bug with the outline strokes that I bet n one even bothered to check on.
if you align the stroke to the inside of the path and outline it it will leave the path inside the outline stroke will be opened and the outside path will have an extra point, you can leave the extra point or take the pen tool and delete the top one and that part ill be fixed the open path has to be lassoed and then joined.
Also the new behavior of outline strokes now leaves the original path besides the outlined stroke. In the scenario above you now have two paths the original and on top of it the one create when you outlined the stroke.
This does not happen when the stroke is aligned with the path at the center of the stroke.
Kind of sloppy testing and coding I think by this version the outline stroke which is important to large group of users should have been properly corrected.
That’s an ugly bug indeed! A simple workaround is to either rasterize the gradient mesh, or apply a rasterize effect on them before exporting them to Photoshop format.
But please go and report it: www.adobe.com/go/wish/
Thanks for that tip! Applying a rasterize effect is a convenient workaround... until a patch is forthcoming. I've submitted a bug report.

Not all Illustrator testers are also Photoshop testers and not all Photoshop testers are also Illustrator testers.
Hmm! The psd is corrupt does not matter what version Photoshop you pen it in.
I can understand a Photoshop tester not catching this but one of the major export use of Illustrator is to the .psd format.
I know that gradient mesh issues where a big to do in CS4 and and a at least two of those users mention they were on the Illustrator beta team.
I would think if it were that important to have very subtle features that something like this stand out. This did not go unnoticed I am positive of that
unfortunately that person was no longer a beta tester.
It is neither here nor there clearly water under the bridge. I will file a bug report. but this is inexcusable oth the internal and external testing teams should be little bit embarrassed.
I know if I were a tester I would make a really big noise and I won't care who was uncomfortable about it. Or how unpopular it made me with the team.
I'm putting in a report.
BTW in case you are interested it did not go unnoticed. Unfortunately the person who noticed it was not in a position to do anything about it.
Sorry to tell you that Adobe does not care to provide patches or updates (the last update was released over 4 years ago). You will need to buy CS6 (18 months from now - Approx.)
Adobe did not care to fix all the CS3 bugs or CS4 bugs. But I will be happy to see Adobe proving me wrong and provide an update after many years of neglecting its customers.
OH MY! What a surprising and unexpected post!
I feel refreshed now i was getting tired of actually trying to help people with real problems but now that Hans is on the scene my adrenaline is flowing once again.
It feels good!
