Adobe announced that Acrobat 8 Professional software will be integrated into Adobe Creative Suite 2.3 Premium to support Adobe PDF workflows. In a separate indication, Adobe CS3, code-named “Red Pill,” is due out in Spring 2007.

Adobe Creative Suite 2.3 Premium also bundles Dreamweaver 8. The company says Future versions of Adobe Creative Suite will integrate Dreamweaver as a replacement for Adobe GoLive., but Adobe will continue to develop GoLive as a standalone product.

“Acrobat 8 Professional enables printers to achieve better quality while automating workflows and controlling costs, and together with the recently released Adobe PDF Print Engine delivers the first end-to-end native PDF workflow,” said Mark Hilton, vice president of product management.

“In addition, we decided it was the right time to deliver Dreamweaver with Creative Suite 2.3, so customers can make the transition to the industry’s leading Web design and development tool.”

Added to industry-standard PDF/X-1a and PDF/X-3 files, Acrobat 8 Pro outputs PDF/X-4 for native transparency support, and PDF/A for long-term archiving.Adobe Reader 8 enables shared reviews, email- and Web-based reviews, digital signatures, and form completion.

The software also introduces the Start Meeting feature with built-in access to Adobe Acrobat Connect (formerly Breeze), a Web-hosted subscription service that supports real-time online collaboration for employees and clients spread out geographically. At launch, though, the software will only be available in the U.S.

Adobe says that with Creative Suite 2.3, printers can automatically fix problems identified during pre-flight review in PDF, including hairlines, color space, transparency flattening, font embedding, and image resolution. Support for automated JDF workflows enables printers to automatically output and validate PDF files from Adobe InDesign CS2 software.

Adobe expects to ship Adobe Creative Suite 2.3 plus Dreamweaver 8 for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh in English, French, German, and Japanese in the fourth quarter 2006.

Estimated street prices will be US$1199 for the full version of Adobe Creative Suite 2.3 Premium, US$159 for an upgrade from Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium, and US$549 for an upgrade from Creative Suite 1.x Premium and Standard.

Apple Insider covers an analyst’s annotation of discussion at the Photoshop World conference revealing that Photoshop CS3 would launch next three. According to a keynote delivered by an Adobe SVP. In a note to clients, the analyst said that Adobe had “successfully moved this core application to the Intel-Mac platform.”
