We’re happy to announce that our plugins are now available for InDesign CC.
The CC update was a little more difficult than planned. We needed to wait until a critical bug was fixed in InDesign. Before installing the CC version of any of our plugins, make sure you install the InDesign CC update released on January 12 2014.
We don’t yet know what our upgrade plan will be moving forward with CC. How we handle it will probably depend on Adobe’s policy going forward in terms of versioning and user feedback. We’re not sure if users want subscriptions to match CC subscriptions, yearly upgrade fees, linking to specific computers, etc. It would be wonderful if we could just give lifetime licenses, but the sad facts are that without revenue from upgrades, it does not pay to sell plugins.
If you have opinions on how we should handle future upgrades, please leave a comment.
No matter how things play out in the future, CC licenses will definitely work until either Adobe changes the InDesign serial number (we don’t know if that will happen or not), or you migrate to a new computer. We will also allow license transfers to a different computer for at least one year from the purchase date.
We are happy to announce that all our products fully support CS6.
We are even happier to announce the newest little Harbs (who had something to do with the delayed release of CS6 support…)
The awesome Flex community has been working very hard on getting out the first parity release of Apache Flex. This is a very exciting time for Flex development because it’s truly being driven by an awesome community for the first time!
We’ve been very busy on a lot of fronts lately. Not much to show publicly yet, but it’s been busy…
Updating our products for CS6 has taken much longer than expected, but we’re happy to say that World Tools and World Tools Pro are now CS6 ready. We are working on the rest of our plugins and those should be ready soon.
The updated plugins can now be downloaded for the World Tools and World Tools Pro product pages.
After holding out a year and a half, I just bought my first iPad.
I remember when the iPad came out. My initial reaction was different than most people. My thinking was “what good is it?”. Yeah. It was cool, but it didn’t do anything special. I remember talking to my friend David Blatner at the CS Developer conference in Seattle last year soon after the iPad came out. He showed me his iPad and I asked him what’s so great about it. “What do you mean? It’s great! The kids love it! You have pictures, videos…” I just didn’t get it. I don’t need toys. What does it do for me?
What was I missing that everyone else seemed to get? Read more
