It’s still 2015…

Well, at least according to Adobe. Thus this year’s first new Creative Cloud versions are labeled as 2015.something, which is actually pretty terrible. It’s like the company being in full Corel mode and having zero confidence in their products because they know that a) they are still full of bugs and unresolved issues (trust me, they know when they fuck up even before releasing this stuff), b) there is little to none real innovation and new features and c) not having the guts to openly admit it. It’s like saying to their customers “Look, be glad we are still fixing bugs for you, so shut the fuck up. The ‘real’ 2016 (in October/ November) versions are going to be awesome.”. If only! Here we are, barely 48 hours after the release and forums are already filling up with the same issues as they have with every CC release thus far – stuff that worked previously doesn’t work, plug-ins disappera, updates can’t even be installed and new features don’t work “as advertised”. I don’t know what you would call it, but I call this grossly incompetent on all accounts – developers, marketing, overall strategy. As for the features – not much worth talking about and as per the previous paragraphs, Adobe is milking the ever same features for as long as they possibly can. Content aware crop in Photoshop? Who even asked for that? Oh my…
