Adobe has announced that they are going to announce the release of Creative Suite 5 (CS5) on April 12. While I have zero knowledge of when it will ship, I wanted to remind everyone that Adobe has changed their upgrade policy. You now can only upgrade from the last 3 generations. So In order to buy an upgrade you now have to be using CS2 or newer. So you slackers still using CS or older will have to buy a retail version to get in to the 21st century of photoshop and Creative Suite CS5.

Adobe has built a pretty cool webpage with a countdown timer for the launch party…HERE.
