Adobe has just announced the first noteworthy update to its Creative Cloud offering since its debut of the CC series. Headlining this release is Edge Reflow, which now lets users create entire sites — instead of just single page responsive designs.

In addition, Edge Code, Adobe’s early-beta text editor for HTML and CSS, is now integrated directly with Edge Inspect (previously Shadow) and Kuler (that color scheme generator).

Here’s a look at the new features in Edge Reflow:

Adobe cheerfully explained the expanded features:

Who designs single page sites?  Websites today are so complex that even the simplest ones usually have 5-10 pages!  Since launching Reflow back in February, many of you have been asking for the ability to create multi-page responsive comps.  So, we thought, “Hey! That’s a pretty good idea!”

Finally, aside from bug fixes in Edge Animate — which targets Internet Explorer 11 issues  — the last noteworthy change is new support for third-party plugins in PhoneGap Build.

As you’ve likely heard, Adobe killed off its famous Creative Suite back in May of this year. Of course, the apps aren’t gone, but some have rejected the company’s new subscription model.

Put simply, Adobe needs to prove that these updates are worth the new monthly fee. If you’re interested in the company’s experimental Edge family of Web-focused apps, you have a reason to be happy today.
