The beta release of Adobe CS6 is out and it is a free download from Adobe Labs, it is kind of like Christmas in March.

We here in the Program are impressed with the updates and of course we love the new tone of the user interface.  For all you First Years and for all those who have recently applied we recommend downloading the beta as this is what you will be learning in September.
