Adobe Creative Suite 5 to be unveiled April 12

Adobe has just launched a teaser site promoting the launch of their upcoming design suite, Creative Suite 5. The site is running a countdown to 11AM EDT on April 12, where they will announce the newest version of their flagship suite of design and editing tools. 

The site also features some early looks at what's to come in CS5. Other sneak peak videos are available here for viewing. The launch presentation will be streamed online at Adobe TV and will require a (free) Adobe ID registration. 

Adobe CS4 was released back in October 2008 (16 months ago) and among other improvements, brought 64-bit support for some of its applications. Mac users were left in 32-bit land, though, as Apple dropped 64-bit support for its Carbon APIs in 10.5 Leopard, which Adobe largely relied upon. CS5 is set to finally remedy that with rewritten code to take advantage of 64-bit Cocoa. Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro have been confirmed to be 64-bit only for this next release, while Photoshop will remain in both 32 and 64-bit flavors.
