Adobe's Next Upgrades - Photoshop 8, Illustrator 11, InDesign 3.0
An analyst report made waves today with speculation that Adobe would release a new version of Photoshop "and other key applications" by the end of the year.
According to the report, November/December is the expected shipment time for Photoshop 8.
Early beta screenshots of Photoshop 8 appeared on Mac websites in early July. Those images were quickly removed at Adobe's request, however.
One reader notes that McGraw-Hill is publishing a book entitled "How to Do Everything with Illustrator 11" which is due to be published on October 9, 2003 -- providing one possible timeframe for release.
In the meanwhile, upcoming PowerMac G5 owners should be satisfied with Photoshop 7 with a G5 Photoshop plug-in which is reported to be coming.
Microsoft-Watch reports on another major Adobe application -- InDesign. Indesign 3.0 is currently in beta testing and is expected to be released this fall. Microsoft-Watch details numerous improvements in the 3.0 version.
