First Look at Adobe InDesign CS7(?): New UI, Native 64-Bit, QR Codes
[UPDATE (May 6th) – Major news out: Adobe Unveils New “CC” Release (CS7)…]
Adobe just slipped out a brief sneak peek of the upcoming new version (perhaps CS7?) of its popular InDesign application, “InDesign Sneak Peek: See What’s Coming Next.” This short preview shows a revamped user interface demoing a new “Generate QR Code” feature.
Based on public information, we’ve previously written on how the next release of InDesign will be a native Cocoa app with full 64-bit support for high performance, and – if it’s been fully rearchitected like the similar changes coming for Flash Pro – then it should be much faster.

These are just partial feature lists of what’s coming, and all new releases and features will be included for Creative Cloud members at no additional cost – so if you’ve been thinking about going that route, Adobe says:
The new version‘s release date has not been announced, but there is a great way to get yourself to the front of the line. If you join Creative Cloud now, you will immediately receive the entire stable of currently shipping CS6 applications AND you will automatically receive the new versions of all your favorite Adobe applications as soon as they are available.”
