Adobe has decided to step up its release cycle and now in addition to releasing a new version of the Creative Suite every 2 years, they will also be bringing a “milestone” version every 12 months. Enter CS5.5!
CS5.5 is an update to the CS5 suite bringing improved versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Flash Builder Premium, Flash Catalyst, Flash Professional, Dreamweaver, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.
The Creative Suite CS5.5 offers a lot of improvements, bugfixes and tweaks, alongside many new features including better support for HTML5 and focus on developing mobile applications and testing them thoroughly within the Suite itself. Here’s a video explaining what else is new.
Adobe has also worked out a new subscription system. You will now be able to get any of the Adobe products on a pay monthly basis with fees as low as $19 per month if you commit to an annual subscriptions. If, one-year contract is too much for you, you can get the pure month to month subscription for $29.
