The latest version of Illustrator (25.2) comes with many new features and enhancements. The new features include:
Invite to Edit:
You can now invite people to collaborate on your cloud documents from within the app. Simply click on the icon at the top right of the app UI to open the Invite to Edit panel and add people by typing their Adobe ID (email).
You need to save the document as Cloud Doc and close it so that the invited person can work on it. If the document is open at your end, other team members will be unable to edit it and will receive an in-app message to that effect.
Other collaborators can also invite people/team members to edit the document.
If you are the owner of the document, you can add and remove members authorized to edit the document.

System Compatibility Report:
This new feature opens a system compatibility report at the launch of the app to show if there are any outdated graphic drivers. In case you missed it at launch, you can also relaunch it from the Help > System Compatibility Report menu.
If there are any conflicts, you also get an option to fix them by updating the drivers with a simple click.
Snap to Glyph support for Japanese Glyphs:
The existing “Snap to Glyph” feature now supports Japanese Glyphs too. You can enable this feature from Preferences > Type > Language Options > Show East Asian Options.
Performance and Stability:
In addition to these amazing new features, we’ve also worked on improving the overall performance of Illustrator by fixing the top reported issues. Here’s a list of improvements and fixed issues in the latest version.
We have received several reports where some individuals in the community are posing as Adobe Employees. These individuals are falsely representing who they are to gain your trust, and possibly access to your computer or personal information by offering to help troubleshoot issues.
Here are 3 Easy ways you can identify Adobe Staff:
➊ All Adobe Staff have a RED ADOBE BADGE below their profile picture and an Adobe logo after their username. This staff badge is visible on Adobe Staff profile pages, original posts and reply threads.
➋ Genuine Adobe emails are always email@example.com
➌ Adobe Staff will never ask you to share your passwords or sensitive information in the Adobe Community. Adobe employees will always direct you to communicate through an official Adobe channel to set up support sessions.
Report abuse or suspicious behavior to: firstname.lastname@example.org
