Adobe Illustrator CS6
Powerful vector drawing tools

Adobe Illustrator CS6 is a powerful vector drawing tool that includes everything you'll need for design, web and video projects.

One major headline this time is the new focus on performance. True 64-bit support and Adobe's Mercury Performance System play a big part in improving responsiveness, but Adobe have also been identifying and resolving bottlenecks all around the package. The previous Gaussian blur implementation wasn't the best, for instance, but it's been optimised for CS6, and as a result Gaussian blurs (and effects which depend on them, such as drop shadows and glows) are now much, much faster.

It's a similar story with the interface. There's an obvious new look (you can even tweak the UI brightness to your personal taste), but Adobe report making more than 40 usability tweaks to the Illustrator interface, from easier font changes to inline editing of layer names.

And workspace management just generally works a little more like you'd always hoped. So even options which were previously hidden away, such as the Shape and Pen tools, can now be torn off and docked. And you can dock tools horizontally or vertically to organise your workspace just how you'd like.

You're looking for something more? Illustrator CS6 is relatively short on the big new features. There's a new image tracing engine to help you convert raster images to vectors, for instance, and the program can now easily create seamless tiled vector patterns, but that's about it.

Is it worth the upgrade, then? Tricky: the performance enhancements and UI tweaks are welcome, but may not be enough to justify the outlay. We'd recommend you try before you buy.

Please note, the file you'll download here is Adobe's Download Manager, which will then fetch and install Illustrator for you. It's a huge file, though, so patience will probably be required.

Verdict:

Illustrator CS6 is notably faster and smarter then the previous edition. It's otherwise a little short on major new additions, but that's no great surprise as the program already did just about everything you could want, and it remains the best vector drawing tool around

WhatsApp Messenger 2.20.22

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.20.22?

- New privacy settings allow you to control who can add you to groups. Admins will have the option of sending you a private invite instead. Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups to get started.
- Added call waiting support so you can choose to accept an incoming WhatsApp call while you're already on another call.
- You can now send messages directly from the Braille keyboard when using VoiceOver mode.
- To reduce data usage, enabling your iPhone’s Low Data Mode will now disable media auto-download in WhatsApp.
