Last chance to download Photoshop CS6 beta. Will it ship tomorrow?

Adobe says that today is the last day you can download the beta version of Photoshop CS6 – though as the company's working on a 5pm cutoff on west-coast US time, that means that here in the UK we've actually got until 1am tomorrow.

The new release features a wealth of features including the ability to move objects seamlessing in scenes, on-canvas blur tools, Illustrator-style vector graphics, improved 3D modelling and texturing, video editing and more.

The beta of Photoshop CS6 can be downloaded from the Adobe Labs site. Adobe hasn't said whether it will release a second beta to follow, or release the full version for sale. The whole of Creative Suite 6 is due for launch by May 22.
