Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 announced (and already shipping)

Already, there is some previewing action on PSE8 in the photo-blogo-sphere:
+ 27-minute podcast dedicated to PSE8 with Derrick Story
+ Hands on preview post by Lori Grunin at CNet Crave

Already available for purchase/download for Windows users
If you are a Windows user, you can buy this right now directly from Adobe for $100. You can select a software box by mail, or immediate digital download. The software download is only for high-speed connections, as the software package is one gigabyte long!
They also have a $20 mail-in rebate you can submit, which would bring your effective price down to $80. The $20 mail-in rebate promotion is good until October 31st 2010.
