With today’s release, creating custom responsive websites in Muse is easier and more expressive. Scroll effects are now available for responsive sites on breakpoints set to fixed width. A new vertical move handle helps you work more efficiently by moving large groups of items at once. Under the hood, we’ve introduced efficiencies that can help increase the Google Page Speed ranking of your sites.

We’re also excited to introduce support for Muse within Adobe Comp CC as a new way of bringing your ideas to life. Comp CC allows you to create your layout anywhere, anytime on iPad and iPhone. Starting today you can finish these layouts in Muse and turn them into responsive websites! Download Adobe Comp CC and try it out by using the new “Send to Muse” button. See the whole workflow in action in this video tutorial.

These are just a few of the improvements in today’s release. For a detailed list check out our release notes. If you’re new to Adobe Muse, start your free trial today.

Creative Matchup

In case you missed it, to celebrate the release of responsive design in Adobe Muse CC in February we challenged two exceptional designers to create responsive websites. For both Hydro74 and Ashley Heafy it was their first project with Muse and we pitted them head to head competing to create the best site for a surprise client. The catch? We only gave them only 4 hours for the entire project – from their first meeting with the client to publishing a finished site.

We teamed up with the fabulous group over at Fiction and produced Creative Matchup, a series of two videos to tell the story of this clash of two design titans. Check them out!

Decision to Drop Support for Internet Explorer 8 and 9

As on ongoing process we evaluate browser usage trends and improve Muse output to take advantage of the capabilities of modern browsers while preserving your design intent on all popular browsers. Microsoft ended support for Internet Explore versions 8 and 9 in January of this year and usage has fallen low enough that we’ll no longer be testing the HTML output from Muse on these browsers. This decision enables us to make significant improvements to the code Muse creates.

As always, let us know what you think on the Muse forums.

    “I was able to spend 15 minutes or so taking new pictures to use on the site”

    This is EXACTLY what is wrong with the design industry and why clients refuse to pay for high end work…

    I saw on an Adobe website that you can change stuff like dead quick… SMH
