Looks good (I'm all for speed improvement and that bit about selecting anchor points when the whole object is selected will keep some of my hairs from turning gray), but...

does it let you select down?

Good question Nat. It looks like they are bringing a little more Freehand functionality into the mix...

I think the new way the software lets you interact creatively with color is going to be a huge improvement. Have you checked out Adobe's kuler website?

Also - here is a nice review of Photoshop CS3 that was recently posted to CreativePro.

Teri Pettit explained in a post recently how they changed the algorithm for selecting control points so it would drill down all the way through the document instead of picking the first point, and this algorithm had not been changed since version 1.
