Important note regarding ADM support
Our testing with Illustrator CS3, CS4, and CS5 (Ai 13, 14, and 15) in OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) indicates that these older versions of Illustrator are beginning to become unstable. For example, on our test machines, the UI for CS3 does not fully load on occasion, CS4 receives several errors on launch regarding Photoshop import/export plugins, and CS5 crashes on quit most of the time.

Attempting to build a CS3, CS4, or CS5 plugin against our binaries with Xcode 7 is problematic as well (the linker gives an error regarding "compact unwinding", among others; linking can be achieved with the "-no_compact_unwind" option, but crashing at runtime has been observed). While the binaries themselves should continue to function, Xcode 7 cannot be used to develop for these versions of Illustrator (you will need Xcode 4, 5, or 6).

As such, we are officially deprecating support for these versions of Illustrator. As they are the versions of Illustrator still using ADM for plugin UI, we will cease further development of ADM-related features and only fix major bugs regarding these versions. When CORE reaches version 0.7.0 we will officially drop support for these versions of Illustrator and stop compiling our binaries for them.
