CS5.5 & Any Screen

As creatives all over the world wake-up today… we’re greeted with Adobe’s official CS5.5 announcement.

This mid-cycle Creative Suite release is all about the fast moving industry… the push towards publishing to any device be it mobile, tablet, notebooks, or other…  For InDesign this release makes EPUB publishing easier and integrates the Digital Publishing tools… For Dreamweaver HTML5, CSS3 and JQuery mobile framework allows easier targetting of multiple platforms… to name a couple… I really am excited at how our creative tools are evolving… building our publications, apps, web-sites is becoming a less cumbersome task with each new software release.
