Not sure how, but I failed to announce the recent release of JAMF’s newly updated tech paper “Simplifying Adobe CS5 and CS5.5 Administration with the Casper Suite” document. This has been updated for CS 5.5 and AAMEE 2.x.:
Speaking of JAMF, they are holding their National User Conference this November in Minneapolis. Spoiler Alert: I’m totally going to be there. I’ll be the one with the AAMEE shirt on. And if you see me the next day, I’ll be the one with a slightly less clean AAMEE shirt on. (I’m packing light.)
I’ve never been to Minneapolis and I am excited. Home to some cool tech places, like my friends at Code 42 and (of course) JAMF. But also home to some of my all time musical faves: The Replacements, Hüsker Dü and Prince. One of my favorite design shops, Aesthetic Apparatus, is there. Plus Minneapolis has a neighborhood called Dinkytown. How awesome is that? Hope to see some of you there!

Although it is a slow process apparently, email notifications are starting to go out to our enterprise customers who have access to CS 5.5 through LWS this week. If you are unfamiliar with LWS, it is our Licensing Web Site for Adobe Volume Licensing (AVL) customers. It is also where order history, serials, and downloads of our electronic media reside. How about that name LWS though? Nothing says “relic of a bygone era” like a site with the name Web Site in it. Let’s just pretend the WS in LWS stands for Walking Shoes or Western Saddle. How about Worcestershire Sauce? I am fully aware that Licensing Worcestershire Sauce makes no sense, but I am somehow more okay with an absurd name than an overtly redundant one.
I just got word this morning that Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE) 2.0 has also made its way up to LWS as well! This is a whole week ahead of our scheduled release to the public website. How awesome is that? On the Scale of Awesomeness I would give it a 7 out of 10. Why not higher? Well I would give it a 9 of 10 if we were able to have AAMEE 2.0 available on our public DevNet site today as well, but we’ll have it up this time next week and I will post when this occurs with the link. How could it be a 10 out of 10 on the Scale of Awesomeness? This would involve simultaneous availability AND free candy. The free candy bit would bump it up. Don’t underestimate the power of free candy. They made a whole holiday based on it.
