Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) announced Adobe InDesign Server CS2, which enables system integrators and third party developers to build automated, design-driven publishing solutions. Built on the same code base as Adobe InDesign CS2, their design and layout program, Adobe InDesign Server CS2 brings high-end composition and graphics support to a server platform, allowing Adobe partners to introduce automation and design quality to editorial workflows, collateral creation, data-driven publishing and template-based Web publishing solutions. InDesign Server CS2 offers programming capabilities via scripting, C++, or SOAP. InDesign Server CS2 delivers output capabilities, built-in language support, scripting DOM (document object model), and SDK as Adobe InDesign CS2 software. Additional features include support for multiple concurrent instances, error capturing, and server operating system support for Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2003 Server, or Mac OS X Server, version 10.3.x and 10.4.x. InDesign Server CS2 solutions will be available through third parties as a component of automated publishing solutions designed and built by system integrators and developers. Currently, as part of a pilot program for InDesign Server CS2, Cacidi, the Peter Schmidt Group, Managing Editor Inc. (MEI), Sansui Software, SoftCare Software-Service GmbH, XMPie Inc., Wave2 Media Solutions Limited, and WoodWing Software are building and deploying solutions. Adobe InDesign Server CS2 will be available to qualified Adobe developer partners in Fall 2005. http://www.adobe.com
