You can now apply tweens to objects and not just keyframes

A new “Bones Tool” for better animation between linked objects in Flash

InDesign  includes a new Live Preflight tool that allows designers to catch production errors and a newly customizable Links panel to place files more efficiently.

Aware Scaling tool in Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop CS4 Extended automatically recomposes an image as it is resized, preserving vital areas as it adapts to new dimensions.

An expanded version of Dynamic Link in CS4 Production Premium enables users to move content between After Effects CS4, Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, Soundbooth® CS4, and Encore® CS4, so updates can be seen instantly without rendering.

On a side note a beta version of Flash player 10 is available for download here.
