Although the formal formal announcement (can you tell that Adobe is trying to build some buzz around this thing?) is not happening until later today, Adobe officially announced CS3 early this morning. The apps that make up the entire CS3 product line include:

  • Photoshop CS3
  • Photoshop CS3 Extended
  • InDesign CS3
  • Illustrator CS3
  • Flash CS3 Professional
  • Dreamweaver CS3
  • After Effects CS3
  • Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional
  • Adobe Contribute CS3
  • Adobe Fireworks CS3
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS3
  • Adobe Soundbooth CS3
  • Adobe Encore CS3

There are also the same six packages:

  • Adobe Creative Suite Design Standard and Premium
  • Adobe Creative Suite Web Standard and Premium
  • Adobe Creative Suite Production Premium
  • Adobe Creative Suite Master Suite

(Each package that has both standard and premium count as two packages.) All of the above listed packages will be shipping in April 2007, save the Production Premium and Master Suite which will be shipping in the third quarter of 2007.
This is the first release from Adobe that has incorporated the portfolio acquired from Macromedia, and Adobe describes it as their “largest release in Adobe’s history.” For anyone who’s still dying to check out the launch event in New York City, feel free to check out the invite and/or the live webcast at 3:30pm ET.

Any suggestions, ideas? Feel free to comment on this article!
