Adobe announces major updates to Creative Cloud, including 3D

Adobe Creative Cloud is Adobe's online suite of apps, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Today they announced some major updates, including the support for 3D printing, which is really cool, especially considering how popular 3D printing is becoming.

Read more below:

Major update to Creative Cloud with new features across its core tools—Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC  and Adobe InDesign® CC—including 3D printing support in Adobe Photoshop CC.
 Photoshop CC Advances Efficiency for DesignsDesigners can now radically improve collaboration with linked Smart Objects, which update the design automatically if a reference file is changed, and the new Perspective Warp feature, which changes the viewpoint from which an object is seen. New 3D printing capabilities integrated in Photoshop CC enable users to easily and reliably build, refine, preview, prepare and print 3D designs.
 Revolutionizing How Designers Work with TypeDesigners can now seamlessly connect to the Adobe Typekit font service in either Illustrator CC or InDesign, making it possible to integrate Typekit fonts into print projects, PDF files, DPS apps, and more. New functionality in InDesign CC reduces the frustration of missing font errors by automatically searching the Typekit desktop font library for options.
 Illustrator CC Gets Powerful New FunctionalityUsers can finesse designs more directly and intuitively with Live Corners, which allows designers to edit—and re-edit—the corners of shapes and paths visually with on-art controls, or input precise values. Additionally, Illustrator CC now offers more intuitive drawing with the rebuilt Pencil Tool; the ability to quickly modify existing objects and change the view of perspective drawings with Path Segment Reshape and export responsive SVG code and graphics.
 InDesign CC Meets New Creative ChallengesInDesign CC includes new support for EPUB 3.0 specification including new ways to add interactivity to eBooks, the ability to add pop-up footnotes that streamline the EPUB reading experience and support for Japanese Vertical Composition and Hebrew and Arabic text.
 Adobe Muse CC Gets More EngagingScroll effect enhancements in Adobe Muse CC make it easy to create subtle or dramatic scroll effects; a new Library panel stores frequently used design elements; and a dozen new social widgets make connecting to social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter, a snap. Also added, Adobe Muse Exchange, a community-based exchange where custom widgets and templates can be borrowed and shared.
