Adobe Systems tweaked its Creative Suite software, announcing Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 on April 11, a day prior to the start of Microsoft's MIX11 conference, which focuses on the same sweet spot as Adobe—the market for professional designers and developers. The new Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 product line enables designers and developers to target popular and emerging smartphone and tablet platforms, as the revolution in mobile communications fundamentally changes the way content is distributed and consumed, Adobe officials said. Creative Suite 5.5, also known as CS 5.5, features substantive advances to HTML5, Flash authoring, digital publishing and video tools as well as new capabilities that kick-start the integration of tablets into creative workflows. Moreover, this launch marks a major change to Adobe's product release strategy for Creative Suite, the company said. Creative Suite 5.5 kicks off Adobe's plans to have milestone Creative Suite product introductions at 24-month intervals and significant mid-cycle releases designed to keep the worldwide creative community ahead of the latest advances in content authoring.
