Back in May, Adobe released some beta versions of a few of the titles in its CS4 lineup. Beta versions of Flash and Photoshop CS4 have also been floating around, though they have been officially restricted to a small subset of beta testers.
For Windows users, the big news with CS4 will be available in both 32 and 64-bit versions. This means that if you are running a 64-bit version of Vista, a program like Photoshop can access more memory. Sadly, for Mac users, despite having a 64-bit OS in Leopard, we won't be seeing 64-bit versions of Photoshop until CS5.
Having briefly played with the Fireworks and Dreamweaver CS4 betas, it is evident that Adobe has gone to great lengths to better integrate the Macromedia-acquired applications into the Adobe fold. I have also been able to play around with the next Photoshop release, code-named "Stonehenge" and let's just say it is impressive.
I purely speculating here, but I would imagine that CS4 will drop sometime in October. So Adobe fans, start saving those pennies now!
