    How is this a year changing release?

      I was just thinking the same, seems like a pathetic update to be called 2017. CC 2015.51 would be more apt.

    The best of Instagram combined with a small portion of the functionality of Lightroom….What could be less desirable?

    Is Macphun malware??? Ever since I ordered Aurora I’ve been spammed by Macphun (Can Not Unsubscribe) and have been Spear Phished. I don’t believe in coincidence.
