Creative Cloud Charts (Preview) was introduced in the June 2015 release of Illustrator CC as a technology preview to gather real-world feedback from customers on the new service. Based on customer feedback, the Illustrator team has decided to pause Charts and revisit the design of the feature.

What’s the difference between a Technology Preview and a beta?
Technology Previews are services and features in Creative Cloud that we’re releasing publicly before they’re complete. Not to be confused with “betas” (features or new products that are complete but not fully tested), Technology Previews are intentionally “unfinished.” In other words, the features are fully tested and supported, but we’re still perfecting their capabilities; “previewing” the technology gives Creative Cloud members the opportunity to trial the functionality and give feedback to the product teams—who use the information to further shape the development of the features.
Does this mean that Adobe may end other Technology Previews?
Technology Previews are intentionally “unfinished” because we’re still perfecting their capabilities and looking for feedback from Creative Cloud members. The feedback from members will be used to inform future development of these technologies, and in some cases that may mean that we need to go back to the drawing board.
