    Now, wondering what are the added/different features to CS3.

    But I can say I'll stick with CS3.

    Keep in mind that there wasn't much time between when Adobe bought out Macromedia, and when they had to release CS3. For this reason, they didn't have any time to bring the Macromedia products up to speed, up to standard, and in line with the other adobe products. That's what they've been focusing on with CS4 which is why they're calling this one of the biggest updates since... a long time ago.

    I'm still on CS2 and I haven't found a reason to upgrade yet. I might wait till CS5 unless there turns out to be something major on offer in the new version.

    I'd be happy with any CS version if it wasn't $3000

    Yea this will be going to be best adobe product till date. Cs4 have lot of 3d support so people who love to work in 3d they can now use flash and photoshop for 3d work.

    So flash and photoshop covers everything now 2d animation, Flash web site, 3d animation, presentation, tutorials, software and website designing, graphic designing, print media etc.

    So they are going to rule web world now!!!

    Thanks

    I'm still on CS2 & am quite happy with it. Is there anything new as cool as smart guides?

    I'm really looking forward to Dreamweaver CS4. I took the Beta for a 2 day test drive and saw a lot of nifty little features that I know will speed up my coding work flow. I used Coda a lot because of the split screen you can do, and finally DW CS4 will have that.

    On top of that, animating on the timeline of Flash CS4 is completely different. You can set 2 key frames, and then animate over a bezier curve on just those key frames. Even nicer is you can drag the beginning/end of an animation and it will shrink/expand the animation with it.

    That's some of the goodies I've seen. I certainly do hope to upgrade (begging the bosses right now...)

    Is everyone so addicted to Adobe that they would all rather talk about the release date of their new (probably hardly improved) version without any regard whatsoever for improvements or new features?

    Wow. We have reached a new low. Who cares if the product has any features I will need or even want? Let's all just go out and blow $3000 on it and ask questions later!

    That's pretty exciting. It's good to see they are continuing to improve their product. I agree with the previous poster that the price makes it prohibitive to many, and they may very well be losing money as a result of limiting the market.

    As long as they fixed the bugs that are in CS3, the Illustrator embedded font save for one, then it will be interesting. To be honest I won't be forking out my hard earned to Adobe again, having just upgraded to CS3 - then having to uninstall it and go back to CS2 because of the incredibly annoying bugs in CS3 that have wasted so much of my time.

    I get the feeling that one of the reasons the price is so high is due to the high number of pirate copies of the software which will be made, they have to make some money somewhere and pay back all the development time they have spent making CS4.

    The other thing is if you are buying CS4 Master Collection which is advertised on their website for $2,499, divide this by the number of apps in the package (17) you are only spending $147 per app which is pretty good!

    That would be great. For the past few years, adobe didn't made a fuzz but now, it's a big bomb of chili. It's really hot. Can't wait to get hold of that software!

    Reading the excitement over this new product from people who do not even know what benefits it will bring them is the only thing you need in order to explain the exorbitant price tag.

    time to empty your Wallet again!

    No way this thing will fly in the current economic environment... there is practically nothing new in CS4 over CS3.

    Some new features are listed here: http://www.adobe.com/products/creati...s/?view=topnew
    The possibility of including Flash in PDF files is interesting IMO
    I might wait a month or two after its release to upgrade... Especially if some CS3 bugs are fixed and if Photoshop and Illustrator are faster and lighter...
