  • Summary: If you're still using InDesign CS4 or earlier, this is a great time to upgrade. If you're using InDesign CS5, you'll definitely want to upgrade in order to produce electronic publications such as ePubs, iPad apps or accessible PDFs. Just be aware that Adobe is now on a one year paid upgrade cycle, so you'll be paying again in a year.
