Um, Adobe have stooped to announcing their intention to announce something else? Don’t get me wrong, I’m really looking forward to CS3, but why announce an announcement?
I’ve had a go on the beta on my machine, and was loving it. Assuming it’s been sped up a lot (the beta was hella sluggish in places), that’s going to be a lovely bit of software. I’m also curious about Illustrator CS3 - if the interface has at last been unified with the rest of the Suite, then I’m up for a dabble with some lovely vector art!
Before anyone jumps the gun (like I did), the 27th is when they will announce the full features (and possible shipping dates) of CS3 - it is not when CS3 will be shipping.
