New in Illustrator CS2

Illustrator CS (the previous version) was a major update of this now almost 20-year-old application. Released in October 2003 as part of the first edition of Creative Suite, Illustrator CS incorporated the greatest typographic controls this application (which was the first program created by Adobe) has ever had. It brought in the OpenType and Glyphs palettes, much more advanced character- and paragraph-level text control, as well as paragraph and character styles. That version also brought support for layered PDF files, improved color management, greater printing control and printer's marks, vastly tighter integration with Photoshop and InDesign, unified XMP metadata handling, improved linking of area and path type objects, programmable actions, and live 3D effects.

After all that—and a lot more I didn't list—Illustrator CS2, released in May 2005, simply couldn't follow up with as long a list of new features. That is not to say that Illustrator CS2 is not packed with new features; it just doesn't have as many core changes as were introduced with CS.
