Adobe Muse is sold by subscription to allow the Adobe Muse team to make improvements rapidly and be more responsive to ever changing web technologies.
If you are an Adobe Muse subscriber, you can help sculpt future versions by participating in the Adobe Muse beta program. By making a small change in your Adobe Muse software settings, you can enable the Adobe Muse beta software to install whenever the engineers create a new beta build. You can access and explore the cutting edge of Adobe Muse features—and if you have comments or suggestions, you can let the Adobe Muse team know so that they can improve the next version.
A window appears with two participation options:
- Join the Adobe Muse Beta Program
- Join the Adobe Product Improvement Program
You can choose one or both options.
If you enable the first option to Join the Adobe Muse Beta Program, you'll access the beta version of the software automatically. The beta software will replace your current release installation of Adobe Muse so that you can begin working with the newest features immediately.
As new beta builds of Adobe Muse are released, automatic notifications are displayed—just as the Adobe Muse workspace notifies you that the current release version is updated.
If you enable the second option to Join the Adobe Product Improvement Program, the software will occasionally send anonymous data reports back to the Adobe Muse engineers so that they can learn more about how designers are working with Adobe Muse to create sites. This information helps them make informed decisions about how to improve Adobe Muse.
Select the desired checkboxes and then click OK.
That's all that's required to begin participating and using the Adobe Muse beta.
You cannot run both the Adobe Muse beta software and the Adobe Muse release software simultaneously. Beta software contains new features that may not function correctly as the product continues to evolve. Consider reverting to the current release of the Adobe Muse software whenever you are working on a client's project or have a deadline. Also understand that the files you create in the beta version of the software may not be compatible with the release version. In some cases, the features you add to pages with the Adobe Muse beta software may not function when they are published.
As you work with the Adobe Muse beta software, you'll discover new features that may only be partially finished. You may see areas that can be improved or encounter bugs. And as you design sites, you may envision feature requests that would make Adobe Muse more efficient and easier to use. The Adobe Muse team would love to hear your comments, questions, and feature requests so that they can map out the future goals for the engineers.
Adobe Muse is constantly evolving. If you've encountered any feedback while working with Adobe Muse beta that you'd like to share, follow these steps:
