I'm not seeing the normal flood of update bugs. Very promising!

What did they change? If it wasn't much, there isn't much harm they could do.

I work for a BIG TV station group. I found out Friday that Adobe's going to a new model -- automatic updates. You won't have to do them yourself. They'll just be on your machine one fine day. Or maybe they ask your permission before they install. I don't know if every user gets this, maybe just companies with enough clout. I'd imagine my company, with approximately a thousand or more seats of Creative Cloud, constitutes an entity with a little clout.

The station brass tell me that if Adobe wants this to succeed, they'd damn well do a better job of debugging if they don't want users to abandon them in droves.

Here's the deal: Adobe has an abysmal track record of releasing bug-free applications. Do you think they're going to change their ways overnight? I for one am terrified by this new model, especially if I don't have a say when the updates occur. I could be laid out to dry in the middle of a big project.

Thank God I have a perfectly-functioning copy of CS 5.5 on my home machine. It may not be the latest or greatest, but it By-God WORKS.

you may want to peruse the adobe forums. there's some weird bugs like replace clip in bin, importing more than 8 visible media.
color modified because the color engine changes ire >0-90 levels in lumetri. That's just off the top of my head. I recommend finishing any existing projects in their own version. 99% of problems is from adobe not forward compatibility checking for importing older projects .

I have been! And yes, I've seen the spattering of complaints, but not the full-on torch burning riots as with previous updates. I too have been caught by the 'don't open old projects with this version' bug. Unfortunately, this isn't possible with our, and I would suspect many other's workflow. There literally isn't a single moment where we only have a single project going on where we can finish it up, update the software, then start the next project. We consistently have 3 - 6 projects live, and we're a one machine house. I'd sworn off updating this time until the bug fix was issued, and beta tested by the customer base. I was wondering if the comparatively small amount of complaints was because everyone was at NAB, and hadn't actually updated yet.

I've updated on a windows 10 machine with no noticeable issues.
