Adobe unveils new version of Illustrator

As we announced yesterday, Adobe's Creative Suite (CS) of tools will no longer be released as annual boxed editions, but as part of its Creative Cloud subscription service. So the new version of Illustrator, expected to be CS7, is actually called Illustrator CC.

Illustrator CC will ONLY be available through the Creative Cloud, which will mean you essentially rent it, along with Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Dreamweaver CC and other tools, via a monthly subscription. You won't be able to either buy it in the shops or download it for a one-off payment.
