I have just ordered an update to my Adobe design standard suite (CS4) to CS5.
I noticed that the receipt given at the end mentions an availability date of 30th April, not too clear if this is a shipping date or a delivery date.
As in the past I will be up to speed on the new Photoshop within a week or two and will be ready to support it amongst my clients. I will also continue to support fully the last 2 releases (CS3 and CS4).
I can of course offer advice and guidance on CS2 and earlier to clients but will not be running these systems myself.
The stage is set for Apple to refresh the MacPro line of workstations which are currently looking a little long in the tooth, I know lots of people waiting for 64bit Photoshop CS5 to use with a new 6 or 12 core 64 bit Mac.
There is no love lost between Adobe and Apple at the moment however and I wouldnt put it past Apple to cut off their noses and not play along with the game, its been a while since Apple needed Adobe to sell their kit and make a profit, Apple have lots of money from consumers at the moment and thats where they are focusing their attention.
