A.C.C.C.X.P.

After the madness of all those Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, December starts off with some interesting news, beginning with Adobe’s Creative Christmas Cloud. *lol* In what could only be described as one of the most moronic moves, the debacle that was the release of the massively buggy CC 2015 versions overshadowed the rest of the year. With the updates now available, some of that should be fixed, though I’m not sure if we can sleep peacefully. Complaints about the Creative Cloud app refusing to cooperate are already amassing (again) on forums. That is surprising, given that the rather late release (I would have expected it in October) itself is an indication how much stuff needed fixingand they were probably busy until the last minute…

Elsewhere, in more positive, more interesting and more impressive news, a little company shows that there is still some good software on this planet and while I’m no longer a Cinema 4D user, X-Particles still entices me. The 3.5 update actually seems to add some more useful functions than just add the ump-teenth generator like in the original 3.0 version, so my geek nerves tingle at least a bit. Makes you wonder what they cook up for version 4? Or will Maxon buy them and integrate it? Mmmh…
