Despite reports to the contrary, Adobe has no plans to discontinue Camera Raw support for PowerPC users.
The suggestion follows news last week that future versions of the Adobe Creative Suite and Lightroom would be Intel only.
An About.com article claimed that Adobe would no longer issue Camera Raw updates for PowerPC customers. But John Nack, principal product manager for Photoshop, wrote on his John Nack on Adobe blog “that’s not the case: updates will continue for all Photoshop CS4 customers during the CS4 life cycle, just as in previous releases.”
