The new 1.4.2 (July 2019) release of ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud includes the following updates:

Plus—An in-app purchasing option for commercial-grade access at a low monthly cost to premium maps and layers in ArcGIS Online and advanced features within the extension.

Mapboards—Defining map extents inside others is now easier. Mapboards have a tabbed appearance, allowing resizing and positioning similar to those of a web browser tab.

Duplicate mapboards—An existing mapboard can now be easily duplicated (copying the geographic extent, page size, and layers as part of the map).

Sync Individual Layers—Ability to turn on and off whether a layer is downloaded as part of a map sync, allowing a finer level of control and performance for improved efficiency during map updates.

Visualize location analysis—Ability to create geographic offset (buffers), add demographic attributes (geoenrichment) to existing layers, and visualize travel times.

Show overlapping labels—Ensure all features on a map are labeled regardless of space constraints.

Legend—Create a graphic table of unique map symbols with the associated names based on the layer structure from the Illustrator document.

The scale bar, text, and other map surround graphics are now optional processes and are generated outside the artboard.

Non-drawing layers are no longer removed from the compilation window layer list.

A number of bugs that were discovered in the 1.4.0 and 1.4.1 release have been fixed.
