Just got this info from Adobe yesterday. Although we are still anticipating the announcement of CS6 the first half of 2012, it's good to know that there will be upgrade paths for CS5 users and also users of older versions of CS3 and CS4.
The release date is NOT announced yet, and the North Bay Adobe User Group will do its best to keep you informed and to have a special meeting sharing all of the new changes to CS6 when the time comes.
Cheers, Cyndi Reese
User Group Manager
CS6 Upgrade Path for CS3/CS4 Users:
We’re very excited about the upcoming launch of Adobe’s Creative Suite 6 and Adobe Creative Cloud. CS6 will be a major new release of our creative desktop tools, with huge improvements for every type of creative pro. Adobe Creative Cloud will be our most comprehensive creative solution ever, giving members access to the all CS6 desktop software, plus additional services, new tools, Adobe Touch Apps and rich community features. In addition, Creative Cloud members will receive continuous upgrades and updates to all products and services as part of their membership.
With these great new releases coming in the first half of 2012, we want to make sure our customers have plenty of time to discover which offering is best for them. Therefore, we’re pleased to announce that we will offer special introductory upgrade pricing on Creative Suite 6 to our customers who own CS3 or CS4. This offer will be available from the time CS6 is released until December 31, 2012. More details on this offer, as well as any introductory offers for existing customers to move to Creative Cloud membership, will be announced when CS6 and Creative Cloud are released later this year.
This is an OFFER -- NOT a promotion.
The "Introductory upgrade offer" will be available to shrink wrap boxed software, and licensing. The offer will be applicable to all Routes to Market, regardless of IF Creative Cloud is offered. This is specifically for CS6 perpetual upgrades.
CS6 Release date:
We anticipate questions around CS6 release date. We are not giving a date at this time.
