Adobe Muse Engineering Team

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 ourmost 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!

To get more news and updates, please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
