  1. I’d love to hear from someone at Adobe on this. It seems pretty clear, but hopefully they can confirm the intent of this part of the EULA.

  2. Wait….seriously? That’s awesome!

  5. How does group staging/development server licensing work? Example: you buy 2 CF Server licenses for production and your team works locally so the development server version is fine, but you need other people to approve/review also. Do you need a third license?

  6. Also does the scenario change if I am using vmare?

  7. Well, thanks Sami and Sam. This IS excellent news!
