    Looks like Adobe is dropping all support for CS 5 and 6 applications:

    Dear Adobe Customer, At Adobe, we've always been steadfast in our commitment to providing you with state-of-the-art creative tools. That's why, effective June 1, we're making Adobe Creative Cloud your exclusive source for all future creative licensing. This means that Adobe Creative Suite 6 will be discontinued under our TLP and CLP licensing programs. All other Adobe products available under volume licensing, like Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Presenter, will be unaffected by this change.

    Rest assured, we'll work with you to help make the move to Creative Cloud smooth and without disruption to your team's projects. If you prefer, you may still buy individual copies of CS6 on; however, the apps will not have been updated since CS6 was released two years ago.

    As with any change, you're likely to have questions. For answers, contact us at 800-915-9424 or visit our resource page, which includes FAQs, a comparison of CS6 and Creative Cloud, and other useful information.
    Not sure how many users of this forum are impacted, but here is the news.

    Keep on shooting and for those who are in these groups, lets hope the market positively responds.

    Koolaid anyone? The line forms to the right. No pushing.

    My copy of LR4, provided to me when I paid tuition to the uni I used to attend, recently rejected my serial number, and has since stopped working. I contacted the school, and they said the license ran out, and I either have to go to CC, or buy LR5...

    So does this mean the full CS6 Suite they also provided me with is going to cease to function On June 1st?

    It really depends on the license agreement used to acquire CS6 Suite for school. It is really a shame that Adobe is playing this game to "gently" force people into their subscription model. They know that sooner nearly all owners of CS products will have to move over to CC to get valuable updates and improvements. For now, CS6 Photoshop works just fine for my needs along with some plug ins.
