Adobe Creative Suite 3.0 launch confirmed for March 27 March 5, 2007

Posted by farshadf in G4 & G5 Macs, Intel Inside.

Creative Suite 3.0 has been one of the most highly anticipated high-end software releases of modern times, as it will be the first version designed to run natively on Apple Inc.’s line of Intel-based Mac computers. Its availability is expected to spark a sharp uptick in demand for the computer maker’s high-end Mac Pro workstations and other assorted Pro hardware.

The release will also see an infusion of technologies and software applications brought in through Adobe’s acquisition of Macromedia back in 2005. These include Dreamweaver CS3, which is expected to replace GoLive as the primary web authoring application in the release, and Fireworks CS3, which will take on the role of Adobe’s Image Ready application.

In January, analysts at investment research firm PiperJaffray said initial feedback on the public preview of Photoshop CS3, Creative Suite’s flagship image editor software, was a harbinger of much stronger Mac sales waiting in the wings. Analysts for the firm added that customer response to the beta software signaled that the final release would have “measurable positive impact” on Apple’s Pro computer sales.

Adobe last week also confirmed plans to make an entry-level version of Photoshop available online as a hosted web service.
