Today, Adobe will unveil the secrets of their latest professional software package, Creative Suite 3. You will be able to watch a live-webcast, which will start at 3:30 EST (which is 20:30 GMT). If you don’t want to be patient till then, you’ll find some videos already available on this site. There is also an extensive promotional page, from which you can read some of the key features of CS3:
