It has been a little while since my last post. That does not mean that I have embraced the dream to retire to some remote island off Fiji or at least spend 6 months out of the year there. A place with no internet connectivity, and just a small shop to get supplies from and make a long distance phone call across a crackled line once a month to touch base with the outside world. I guess this would also mean I would have no need for my pedometer, smart watch, tech glasses, Bluetooth headphones, smart thermostat, smart smoke detector and most distressingly my smart crockpot. On reflection, it seems as though I have invested way too much in technology to ever lead a life of solitude and so with that settled, let’s get on to business.
Some of you will already have noticed that Creative Cloud Packager 1.5 is live and available to download. This release includes several under the hood changes as well as customer facing features.
- Creative Cloud Packager now supports Value Incentive Program (VIP) for education customers.
- You can now deploy specific version updates, rather than just the latest updates.
-If a newer update is present in CCP and you wish to deploy and older version of it from some physical media you may do so via the offline media workflow.
- Creative Cloud Packager also supports packaging non-Creative Cloud apps.
-Creative Cloud Packager will allow customers also entitled to Premiere Elements for Mac, Photoshop Elements for Mac and Technical Communication Suite to package and deploy using Creative Cloud Packager. This is accomplished when you enter a license key for the relevant product in to the packager and we will fetch the product and present it for packaging.
Adobe Update Server Setup Tool (AUSST) now supports secure connections (https).
-The product update binaries, however, are still transferred over http.
- New customer segment Identification screen (as above)
- Trial License workflow for enterprise renamed to Named License (can still be used for trial)
If you have not updated yet then all you need to do is launch CCP and you will be prompted to update.
