Apparently InDesign 16.1 has been released, but I can't manage to get my Creative Cloud app to see it. It is still saying that 16.0.2 is the latest version. I have done all the steps in this article, to no avail:
Has 16.1 actually been released to the public? The shrunken icon is driving me crazy. I'm also praying they fixed the option-drag duplication bug that also drives me insane more or less daily, but I'm not gettting my hopes up... How has it taken years to fix that bug??!?!? But I digress.
InDesign 16.1 has NOT been released to InDesign users.
It's still in testing in the InDesign Prerelease program. I has quite a few bug fixes but you won't see it unless you're in the InDesign Prerelease program (so don't worry!)
Understandably! It's likely to come out in the next day or two though. Check back by doing Check for Updates on the Creative Cloud app. Must have gotten delayed a couple days.
InDesign 16.1 was indeed released to the public this past Thursday, January 28 on both Windows and MacOS.
Make sure your Creative Cloud Desktop application is current and then force it to look for new updates and it should find the InDesign update by now!
It doesn't appear to be released in the US yet. I also see it in Prerelease, but not when I force the Creative Cloud desktop app. (I force update Creative Cloud desktop frequently.)
They've done a regional roll-out before, and it appears they're doing it again this time.
Interesting. Updated on my systems and my systems are not controlled by Adobe IT. Maybe I was offered the 16.1 updates because my Default install language is English תומך עברית!
That having been said, the internal documents I saw indeed announced general rollout of 16.1 last Thursday. Apparently, “operations” must have decided to throttle this by country.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
I've posted on Prerelease about the confusion, hopefully the Prerelease Team will respond.
I quite dislike having rollouts regionally (which they've done before) because it just causes confusion.
Uwe Laubender reports from Germany that 16.1 is NOT available from the Creative Cloud app for him as well.
InDesign Prerelease replied back:
"We have actually made 16.1 live in four countries only that are Australia, Hong Kong, India and Netherlands. We are doing phased roll out this time and would be making it live very soon in other countries, would let all of you know once we make it live in all countries."
And one more piece of information: When released for you, the build number is 126.96.36.199 (slightly different than the last Prerelease build).
