Adobe Creative Sute 5 Launched!

Today is the day.

At 8am Pacific Daylight Time / 11am Eastern Daylight Time / 4PM British Summer Time on this page you can enjoy a 30 minutes exclusive online preview of new features.

Meanwhile watch this video:

While I still wait about five hours to watch the preview, here it is the list of main new features, directly from the official page:

Text engine

Take complete control over your text with print-quality typography via the new Text Layout Framework.

My opinion: Great! Formatting text has always been a hassle. Now I hope we’ll get something similar to Illustrator.

Code Snippets panel

Reduce the ActionScript® 3.0 learning curve and enable greater creativity by injecting prebuilt code into projects.

My opinion: OMG… prebuilt code… anyone willing to crack the suite and remove this feature?

ActionScript editor

Speed the development process with an improved ActionScript editor, including custom class code hinting and code completion.

My opinion: great, as long as it’s fairly improved than the current one

Creative Suite integration enhanced

Enhance productivity when using Adobe Creative Suite® components such as Adobe Photoshop®, Illustrator®, InDesign®, and Flash Builder™.

My opinion: interesting for suite owners

Flash Builder integration

Use Flash Builder as your primary ActionScript editor for Flash Professional projects.

My opinion: hmmm why should I pay for an enhanced IDE and code in another environment?

Video improvements

Streamline video processes with on-stage video scrubbing and a new cue points property inspector.

My opinion: interesting if supported with the new (announced?) Flash Media Server

XML-based FLA source files

Manage and modify projects using source control systems and collaborate on files more easily.

My opinion: great if you work with a team or want to make a quick adjustment in your project, but I would like to know how to publish XML modified projects

Wide content distribution

Publish content virtually anywhere, using Adobe AIR® for desktop applications and mobile platforms including the iPhone®*, or Adobe Flash Player for browser-based experiences.

My opinion: iPhone apps built with Flash. The killer feature in my opinion.

Spring for Bones

Create more realistic inverse kinematic effects with new motion attributes added to the Bones tool.

My opinion: great for animators

Deco drawing tools new

Add advanced animation effects with a new comprehensive set of brushes for the Deco tool.

My opinion: great for animators

Unfortunately the trial version to download isn’t available at the moment… but expect a deep review once I’ll get it under my mouse.
