Adobe has released a free version of its XD design software

Adobe announced today that it is making its Adobe XD design program for Mac, Windows, and mobile free via a new starter plan.

This Starter Plan is flawless aspiring designers, teams and students, and should make it easier for them to share and manage assets across devices.

Alongside that free "Adobe XD Starter Plan", the multimedia software giant is also launching a fund to help find and pay for individuals and teams, with ten million USA dollars being used to pay for grants and community funds for projects around the world. It is claimed to have more than a million users, and Adobe has promised monthly releases with updates apart from third party integration and support.

That doesn't yet extend to building an app directly from Adobe XD, but Pickr was told that Adobe is invested in advanced prototyping, and that could arrive later. "Adobe XD will be as big as Photoshop, if not bigger", said Andrew Shorten, Senior Director, Product Management at Adobe XD's recent global press conference.

N Korea to join efforts for total nuclear weapons test ban
The effectuation requires the ratification of the world's 44 countries that have nuclear capabilities. The regime plans to close its nuclear test site next week.

The software is getting several new updates that will start rolling out in the next couple of months.

"We are going to start by focusing on screen design and Adobe XD CC, our all-in-one design and prototyping app, because designers are increasingly crucial to businesses and the needs of design teams are progressing rapidly".

An expansion of Adobe's ongoing investment in and collaboration with the design community, this fund will allow developers and designers to take full advantage of Adobe XD and integrate with the Creative Cloud workflows used by millions of creative professionals and top brands around the world. There have also been improvements to conversion fidelity of imported Sketch files. The new feature set focuses on quality of life changes and include a host of integration improvements with Sketch and Photoshop that allows designers to import stroke, image effects and allows users to open Photoshop files faster in XD. Designers can now drag and drop symbols over another one, updating all copies of that symbol. In an attempt to woo over creatives, Adobe has released a free version of XD called the Starter Edition for both Mac and Windows - and has launched a $10 million (around £7.4 million) fund to encourage development of plugins for the software, as well as integration with other tools and services.

Additional details on plan options and pricing for each tier are available on Adobe's website.
