In the midst of Adobe’s announcement today about new Creative Cloud updates, we’d like to share more details about the next release of Adobe Muse. Simply put, the upcoming version will be our most significant update since Muse was first launched.

As we mentioned during Adobe MAX in October, one of the major capabilities we’re adding is responsive design, enabling designers to craft websites that look beautiful on any sized screen. We believe this will be groundbreaking because Muse makes responsive design completely visual and freeform, without having to write a single line of code. Our goal is to help designers of any skill level conquer responsive design.

Another huge step we’re making is integrating Adobe’s signature CreativeSync technology into Muse. Designers will be able to access and reuse design assets such as graphics and colors with Creative Cloud Libraries, as well as browse and license millions of high-quality stock photos and vector graphics from Adobe Stock. Other upcoming features include improvements to SVG support, animated state transitions, and many usability enhancements. The next update of Adobe Muse will be the most significant release since it was first introduced.

Our team is putting the finishing touches on all these improvements, and is working nonstop to ensure the best in class quality you expect from us. The next release will be available via Creative Cloud as soon as it’s ready, sometime in early 2016. In the meantime, you can try a pre-production build today by joining our private pre-release program. Let us know what you think!

Thanks,

Muse Product Manager

    Hello –

    Regarding the “Responsive Design” …

    … Will or can the websites that I’ve currently designed in Muse be converted to “Responsive” in the upcoming Muse update?

    • By Robert Pugh - 8:13 PM on December 1, 2015  

      Yes, you can use old websites, however, it will require some work to get them to work. You won’t be able to use websites built in the responsive design version with the old version though.

      Also, some old external widgets might not work correctly for a while in the new version until they are all updated. Plus, scroll motion will not be available in the new version. However, it has been said it will be available in updates after the release of the responsive version of Muse.

    Great news, can’t wait for the update! It would be great if you could be able to add CSS class names to elements in Muse & not have to do it by applying graphic styles. Also if you could be able to re-arrange swatches in the swatches panel & even be able to save them & load them into new projects. Keep up the awesome work!

    Can people that don’t want to (be Google) opt out of using this new resonsive layout or do we have to find a new web host?

  • By Azam - 6:42 AM on December 6, 2015  

    It would be great if these features below will be included in new versions,
    Sticky elements functionality on mobile website.
    Adobe edge animate new update integration in muse will be more responsive as adobe animate already have responsive skills.
    illustrator pin tool integrated inside muse so be can easily draw shapes other than a circle, rectangle and all those abcd’s.
    3 point gradient colour options.
    Thats all for the creativity we want from muse team. Cheers!

    Year great news, a bit late… i am looking forward to it.

    One more thing…

    I know all are looking for growth, but i think the Muse Team should think twice about the paying musewidgets… As a CC member paying for the whole package, CC is approaching to be “only half a software solution”, and then you pay for the next halv… think about it…

    Thanks for the great work…

    Wise decision to push the release across the year’s end, and not let “Agile” and half-baked “Sprints” ruin Muse’s splendid reputation. Take your time, guys !

    This is exciting news! Looking forward to edge animate being more responsive in Muse. Also, making fonts more responsive will be nice.

    I have spent much time with Muse updating our website nearly daily.
    1) I hope that a previous comment on updating from this version to the new version doesn’t mean I have a lot of work to do to convert.
    2) I am now done with my desktop version and now starting to work on my mobile version of our site. Should I stop and wait or keep going as it will merge well with your work.
    3) Spent most of day working with SEO for the header, images, hyperlink tool tips and page metadata. Is the SEO going to be somewhat automated? What else is there we can expect to make SEO efficient?
    Know that most of us are probably doing our normal job and don’t want to be retrained to use the Muse new version. I took a chance with Muse and it worked out fine for me but it does take time going from desktop to mobile with the present version. Thanks for the news ”’ I hope. Howard
