Adobe Ships New “CC” Release
On June 17th, Adobe released their first round of improvements and new features for Creative Cloud. With literally hundreds of new features and 15 brand new apps this marks one of the biggest product overhauls in Adobe’s history.
While Adobe is still offering perpetual licenses for an undetermined amount of time (If you don’t want to move to the cloud get your CS6 perpetual licenses soon!), 80% of all new adobe customers are buying Cloud subscriptions and it is getting a near 5 star aggregate review. People love it. If you’re unsure about subscriptions and what they mean for you or your company check out Adobe’s open letter to Creative users here.
CC (Creative Cloud) runs on your desktop and does not require an internet connection to operate. Once per month you will need to be connected to the internet to validate your license. If it isn’t validated within a 1 week grace period CC will stop working.
Moving forward, all new features will be released exclusively to CC, so if you want to stay up to date and remain competitive you’ll need to get Creative Cloud.
