Adobe has today unveiled its release plans for the next version of Creative Suite and it looks like they've been very busy indeed. The industry colossus now comes in an initially bewildering variety of different forms, each aimed at providing tools and workflows tailored to different strands of the imaging sector. Adobe is even releasing software to assist developers of software for handheld devices. Each of the 'premium' suites comes packaged with the new extended edition of Photoshop whilst purchasers of the 'standard' set will receive the 'plain vanilla' release. Available from April 2007, this round of releases looks set to cement Adobe's name as the industry leader for some time to come.
