It’s been a digital-publishing-focused week. From a Digital Publishing Suite software update (and an exciting one at that—check out the details below) to min’s Digital Summit, there’s been a lot of talk about apps, newsstands, and HTML5.

  • The latest Digital Publishing Suite software update from Adobe® provides some exciting updates—especially for small to medium-size businesses. A Professional Edition Monthly account is now available, allowing users to avoid the two-year commitment and annual payments required for the Professional and Enterprise account levels. This update also provides support for the Amazon Kindle Fire, an exciting offering for publishers looking to produce content across multiple tablet devices.
  • Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite evangelist, Colin Fleming, put together a video that walks through the Kindle Fire Newsstand feature, showing us why it’s great for publishers and readers alike. Check it out below.

  • Reinforcing that digital sales are a key part of its strategy, Condé Nast announced on Monday that it’s making all of its magazines available on Barnes & Noble’s Nook Tablet and Nook Color. Following the announcement of the Nook Tablet last week, this commitment from Condé Nast may be a sign of the Nook Tablet’s potential to seriously compete with the iPad and Kindle Fire. By the end of November, the Condé Nast titles GQ, Glamour, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Allure, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Brides, Condé Nast Traveler, Details, Golf Digest, Golf World, Lucky, Self, Teen Vogue, W, and Wired will be available on the Nook Newsstand.

This Week in Publishing appears every Friday on the TFP blog. Every week we compile interesting and noteworthy stories from the publishing world and put together a wrap-up to help our readers stay up-to-date. Think we missed something great? Leave a comment below and let us know.
