2014 Lots Of Creative Cloud News Today
2014 Hello From MAX 2014
Adobe MAX 2014 kicks off tomorrow morning with the opening General Session. We've got huge announcements and some big surprises in store for Day 1, inspirational speakers for Day 2, and then I co-host MAX Sneaks with Joseph Gordon-Levitt Tuesday evening. I'll post updates here and on Twitter, and will try to post pictures, too.
2014 PhoneGap Developer Desktop Preview Announced
The PhoneGap team has announced a preview of a new tool, the PhoneGap Developer Desktop application, which was built to allow you to create and work with your mobile apps from a user interface rather than the command line. It uses the PhoneGap CLI behind the scenes to produce a similar result but in an easier to use fashion.
2014 Upcoming PhoneGap Deprecations
The PhoneGap team has announced that on October 15th, 2014 we will be removing support for WebOS, Symbian, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7 platforms. Honestly, with the exception of Blackberry I doubt many will even notice these deprecations. But, if you do build for these platforms, now you know.
2014 Photoshop For Chromebook Beta
In partnership with Google, we've just introduced Project Photoshop Streaming, a new technology beta (initially available exclusively to select North America based Adobe education customers with a paid Creative Cloud membership). Project Photoshop Streaming enables selected participants to access Photoshop on Chromebooks. Applications delivered via streaming are easy to access and easy to manage. Even better, streaming apps work directly with files in Google Drive, so no need to download and re-upload files - just edit directly in the cloud.
2014 Adobe Design Achievement Awards 2014 Winners Announced

2014 Adobe Ideas To Undergo A Transformation
How mysterious! The Creative Cloud Team has just posted a vaguely worded message to say that Adobe Ideas (our popular vector drawing app for iPad and iPhone that's been downloaded millions of times already) will soon become a full-featured drawing app, and will still be free. Full details to be announced at MAX. And while I can't spill the beans, I will tell you that I use Ideas, and I have confirmed that one specific enhancement that I was waiting on is indeed in this next version.
