Undocumented Patch

Today my Adobe Application Manager ran shortly after I started up my machine and found and applied an update to Captivate.  I checked my version number afterwards and discovered that I am now at version  I checked Adobe's web site and looked for this update and couldn't find any reference of it anywhere.  Anyone else encounter this update?  I'd love to know what the fix or improvement was.

I Must Be Patient

So I have purchased the upgrade to Adobe eLearning Suite 2.5 and while I’m excited to try some of the newer features, I must refrain.  You see I’m presently working on a project for a client who is only at version 2.0.  I worry that if I upgrade my laptop prematurely, I will jeopardize the courses that I produce for them.  In the end, they will own all the materials I develop.  I would hate to give them source files that they couldn’t open, or worse, wasn’t compatible with their LMS (Learning Management System).

There is a tip here, in that make sure you remain compatible with your client.  It would look unprofessional if your stuff wouldn’t work with their stuff.  That said, for those that are looking to upgrade their Adobe software, they have some really good prices.  I saved $200 over the regular upgrade price.
