Today is a sad day for the Muse community. Adobe has chosen not to continue its funding of the project. Read on to find out what this means and what the future holds.
Adobe Muse has been with us for eight years and I've been working with it for almost that long too; from its beta beginnings as an Air-based application to the fully fledged Creative Cloud app we know and love today. And, despite its sometimes unpredictable behaviour, designers have been given the ability to build beautiful websites with complete creative freedom and without the need to write a single line of code.
Today, however, sees this come to an end. Adobe is pulling the plug on this feisty little web design tool and whilst it's not disappearing from our screens immediately, it is on a slow dive into oblivion.

Although Muse is undeniably destined for the big software library in the sky, it's by no means happening overnight. Sites created with Muse aren't going to suddenly stop working and neither is the application itself; it's highly possible that Muse will continue working for several years. There will still be support from Adobe and also from the community experts.
It's been a fun and sometimes bumpy ride and we're really going to miss working with Muse, when that fateful day finally comes but until then, keep creating and see you all on the other side. Whatever that may be.
Owner, Creative Muse.
