WebStore, Adobe Creative Cloud 2019 Software Release
Adobe Creative Cloud 2019 released without shared environment (lab and classroom) support.
In October Adobe released Creative Cloud 2019 without lab support.
WebStore cannot build serialized packages for CC 2019 to be used on University managed devices, and we will not be adding 2019 installation packages to the Adobe Unit Use Site license offers on WebStore at this time. Similarly. Endpoint Services (SCCM & Munki) will not be offering these applications until the Adobe makes said serialized packages available.
Why did Adobe release Creative Cloud 2019 without lab support?
According to Adobe to deliver the improved lab experience that will be released in the first quarter of 2019, an update to the licensing technology was required before they could build the shared device application on it. The Creative Cloud 2019 release contains the new licensing technology.
