The latest update to Extension Manager; 6.0.5 is now available via Adobe Application Manager. This update is primarily designed to improve the installation experience and provide much tighter integration with the new Adobe Exchange. These improvements will be visible with a forthcoming update to the Adobe Exchange Panel and a Creative Cloud integrated website which is nearing release. Please download the 6.0.5 update so you are ready for the improved installs that Extension Manager provides. This new version will remove many of those annoying dialogue boxes that users told us were unnecessary and also lets us provide a seamless installation from the Web when the new Creative Cloud website is released.
As mentioned the other thing we have been working on is an improved signing experience, this is primarily for producers of Adobe Exchange. It means you will not need to buy a certificate from a trusted signing authority and will have the reassurance that your product has not been tampered with during the product submission process. There are other benefits and the good news is we think we are almost complete on the signing development work. We will provide more information when the new signing capabilities are released.
In the mean time, if you have Creative Suite 6 or Creative Cloud membership why not try out the Adobe Exchange Panel. New products are being added every day. You can also keep up to date with Adobe Exchange on Facebook and Twitter.
