One of the big advantages Adobe Creative Cloud for teams offers over Adobe Creative Suite 6 perpetual software is the ability to continually innovate. With Creative Cloud, there's no more waiting 12-18 months for upgrade cycles. More than 500 new features have been added to Creative Cloud since it was introduced. The CS6 applications still have the same feature set they had the day they were released in May 2012. In the meantime, Creative Cloud members have been able to take advantage of frequent feature updates that are delivered at no additional cost. They are simply included as part of the ongoing membership. When new features are added, members are notified through the Creative Cloud console, so it's easy to keep up with what's new.
