Thank you, Dennis, for sharing what I am sure is an announcement that is bound to bring delight to the PPro community.
I. for one, am hugely looking forward to CS6.
Veeeery interesting, indeed.
Hmmmm. Can't wait.

This is great news! I have always been a big fan of Iridas and think this aquisition will be great for Adobe and even greater for the Adobe userbase. Now the most important thing to do is determine the best implementation into the existing/future products and suites. Standalone, integrated, plug-in....all tough choices. I would urge Adobe to really make sure the way in and way out of "Adobe Grade" is seemless.
Second, immediately start writing proper drivers for the new Tangent Element panel. Its a must have.
