More on Adobe upgrades

Well, it might have been what they were planning all along, but just failed to communicate, or it might be a response to the general levels of disapproval expressed on the new upgrade policy I mentioned a while ago, but it seems that Adobe now have a new plan for upgrades to the apparently due quite soon CS6.

The “one version back” policy remains, but users of CS3 and CS4 versions will qualify for what’s described as “special upgrade pricing” up to the end of 2012. Whether that’s the same upgrade price that will be charged to CS5 users isn’t altogether clear.
