some version direct links adobe incl limits downloads software

tarekma7Adobe Limits Software Version Downloads, Incl. Some Direct Links
Quote:Adobe has just made a big change to the version availability and usage of its creative software products, both for CC and CS applications…
Since the advent of Creative Cloud in 2012, the company has said that subscribers can use any release of the CC products that has ever been available. Some customers use prior versions due to compatibility with evolving system requirements, or because co-workers have standardized on the same earlier release.

However, effective immediately, Adobe has completely discontinued certain older versions of Creative Cloud apps and as a result, under the terms of the licensing agreement, subscribers are no longer licensed to use them.
Per their recent email, “We ask that you discontinue all usage of the unauthorized products listed in this table, and instead update to the authorized versions provided. You will continue to receive all the value that Creative Cloud has to offer, but with more advanced features and capabilities, critical bug fixes, and security updates. For these reasons we recommend all customers use the latest release of our Creative Cloud applications.”

Quote:How does this move impact Creative Cloud users?

These unauthorized versions of CC programs are recommended to be uninstalled, otherwise users “will not have third-party claim coverage pursuant to their contract with Adobe. Should customers continue to use or deploy these unauthorized versions, they may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.”
Pursuant to this, Adobe has removed access to these specific apps from both the Creative Cloud Desktop app, as well as via the CC direct download links… This is something to be especially aware of if you have relied on access to and usage of those older tools.
Fortunately, all tools within the most recent two major releases of Creative Cloud (CC 2019 and CC 2018) remain fully licensed and authorized, and continue to be available for download & installation via both the CC Desktop app as well as via direct links.
Further, not all older versions of all apps are restricted. For example, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, and InDesign CC 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019 are all still authorized and all still available for download and ongoing use.
