Adobe NU and SDL package updates bulletin

WebStore updates Adobe IT Pro package mid-month, every month.

The Adobe package releases occur continuously with both minor and major releases. Apps and app family development follow separate schedules. Adobe version release scheduling occurs in 14 day intervals.


New NU Self Service Installation Packages available in the WebStore:


This offer includes the Self Service NU packages for the Creative Cloud Desktop application and Acrobat. These packages are the same ones that users can download and install directly from the Adobe Cloud account. The reason for preinstalling these on managed machines is to give users who would ordinarily lack the admin permissions to install Adobe apps on their computer, the ability to do so. Installing only the Creative Cloud desktop package, will give the user access to the Adobe apps panel where they may download any or all of the Creative Cloud Suite apps included in their subscription. Installing only the Acrobat package will install both Acrobat AND Creative Cloud desktop app. Both package installations will automatically manage Adobe app updates by default.


Self Service packages for Adobe provide automated updates and easy user access to the complete Creative Cloud Suite of Adobe products and services. If your department does NOT maintain regular updates for Adobe software, we HIGHLY suggest that you install the Self Service packages for Creative Cloud and Acrobat since Adobe programs will cease to work if they are not regularly updated. Installing a Self Service package will allow non-admins to update their Adobe programs, download and install the compatible app versions from Adobe directly and decreases IT overhead.
