One of the many products updated last night as part of the Creative Cloud was a new version of Edge Reflow. Edge Reflow is a powerful prototyping tool for creating responsive designs. There are many updates but in this blog post I'm going to demonstrate just a few of them that related specifically to typography.
Good morning, folks. I know a few of you are tired (as I am) after staying up last night for the launch of Creative Cloud. If you haven't kept up to date, the Creative Cloud (CC) is the new version of our Creative Suite. Creative Cloud gives you access to over thirty different applications and services, including hundreds of new features to products like Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and the Edge tools.
Pricing options include versions for individuals, teams, enterprises, and education. You can also sign up for free to get trials and download preview versions of some of the applications. (The free membership also gives you 2 gigs of storage space!) You can see details here: https://creative.adobe.com/plans
Even better, it is now much easier to actually install these applications. The new desktop application gives you one click access to installing new applications as well as handling updates.
But what if you don't even know how to use these new tools? Today we also launched over 200 new videos. These are great for both old and new users alike.
I plan on blogging more later about some of my favorite tools (Reflow, Inspect, Code) but would love to hear any questions (or comments) about any of the tools.
As always - just passing it on...

As always, comments and criticisms are welcome.
It's been a while since I reviewed a video game on this blog so I thought I'd use today to catch you guys up with what I've been playing the last few months. As always, comments are welcome.
Over the past couple of days I've made more progress on the Node project I started. If you haven't read the first article, click that previous link for the background. Here's what I've been able to do since my first post.
Were you waiting to check out Brackets until ColdFusion support was available? Good news - Reto Aeberli has released an extension that provides basic support for ColdFusion. It doesn't support functions or cfscript yet, but it is an excellent start. You can download the extension from the web site he created: http://cfbrackets.org/
I thought I had blogged about Errorception before, but unless my search engine skills are failing me I must not have ever gotten around to it. Errorception is a service that aggregates and reports on client-side errors on your web site. By placing a simple embed in your HTML code, all errors will be sent off to their service for your perusal. When I first tested this service, I remember thinking, glibly, that I hope I'd get enough data points to make it worthwhile to demonstrate. I mean, my blog runs well, I never see any errors myself, so I just kinda assumed everything was good. Heh.
This morning (which now seems like a reallong time ago), I tweeted about how spoiled I am with npm and package management in general. If you've never experienced this, let me give you a real quick, rough idea of what this means as a developer.
