    But will Acrobat X be integrated into CS5?

    I’m saving for a Design Premium but the really important programs for me are Acrobat Pro, Photoshop, and Illustrator.

    When will Adobe Creative Suite 5 include Acrobat X Pro?

    Because Adobe Creative Suite 5 contains so many applications, it isn’t always possible to update the entire suite edition when a single product release becomes available. Acrobat X Pro will be included in the next dot release of Creative Suite. Creative Suite customers who have purchased an Upgrade Plan, Gold Support, or Platinum Support will be notified automatically when the update is available.
