According to previously reliable sources, Adobe is finishing up development on one of their largest Creative Suite updates in years, CS6. Adobe has been focused on CS6 development since mid-2011 and now development is winding down. This period has seen numerous beta releases that have been seeded to a small, private test group. But now, with development coming to a close, Adobe is planning on soon making CS6 available in the form of a public beta.

This public beta will mark a feature complete release, but will be Adobe’s final major step in assuring a strong CS6 release later this year. CS6 is a major upgrade to CS5, and some new enhancements include a revamped user-interface, improved content-aware pixel manipulation, integration with new Adobe cloud services, improved 3D effects, layer filtering, improved file searching, and more. The suite includes improved versions of apps such as Photoshop, Illustrator, DreamWeaver, InDesign, and more.
