Thanks for the announcement.
It is nice to know that anyone that now purchases the Technical Communication Suite 1.3 as an upgrade will get Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended for the same price I paid in October 2007 for the Tech Comm Suite with Adobe Acrobat 8. Had I only waited until this month to purchase the Technical Communication Suite I too would have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat but alas, I will have to spend an additional $300US to upgrade to TCS 1.3. Which means I will have paid 30% more for the TCS than anyone purchasing it now.
Sometimes it just does not pay to be an early adopter of a product and have to go through the pain of wondering why RoboHelp 7 was so slow (among other bugs)...but I digress.
I understand you likely have nothing to do with the pricing, but I felt I had to say something.
We bought 3 copies of TCS about a month ago, so the same applies here... quite fustrating!
While it may seem frustrating, I really view this no differently than I would if I were to pop over to Best Buy or Circuit City and buy a new laptop computer. Yes, I might have the latest and greatest at the moment, but I know that down the road something even more powerful will replace what I had the opportunity to use at the time I made the initial purchase.
I guess it's a matter of do you opt in now or play the waiting game.
Fair point Rick, and to be honest I'm less bothered about Acrobat being updated than if they were to release RH8 or CP4 tomorrow and say that we had to pay extra for these, having just bought the suite..
I guess the point is that the TCS is a pretty new bundle and I would expect a slightly longer shelf life.. but c'est la vie :)
Ah, I just got TCS and Acrobat 8 Pro last week! We ordered it a month ago - it took all that time to filter through purchasing and IT. I don't think I need anything in Acrobat 9 at the moment though. Still, it would be nice to get a free upgrade. ;-)
