Why can't we get timely updates of camera raw for photoshop elements?

For example, camera raw 9.8 came out, but still no update for pse 15. Why?

Pse 15 users are starting to need camera raw 9.8 like in this post:

Q: When will the new update of Adobe Camera Raw be released?

A: Adobe cannot comment on unannounced products, however, it is expected that ACR and DNG converter will be simultaneously updated 3 or 4 times per year (i.e. every 3 or 4 months).

The Elements team is working on an update for 9.8. This release wasn't simultaneous. Future updates should sync up better.

Why does adobe still refuse to provide timely updates for the latest photoshop elements versions.

The 9.10.1 acr plugin has been out for weeks and pse 15 still hasn't recieved the update.

Users are starting to want coverage for their new cameras covered by that 9.10.1 update.

Okay now adobe has issued 3 including the 9.10.1, 9.12 and just out 9.12.1 camera raw updates since the last 9.10 camera raw plugin that is available for pse 15.

Last time i checked pse 15 was the current pse version and nobody knows whether there will even be a pse 16.

Is this planned obsolescence by adobe or what?

It's been about a month since camera raw 10.3 (april 2. 2018) was released for adobe cc applications, but still no 10.3 camera raw update for photoshop 2018.

Why can't we get timely updates of camera raw for photoshop elements?

The current version for Elements 15 os 9.10.0.173 (Menu Help >> Updates).
(I can only speak for Windows, it seems Apple Store versions are not updated.

Well there is a camera raw 9.10.1 version that came out a few weeks ago and was wondering why pse 15 hasn't gotten the update.
http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2017/05/camera-raw-9-10-1-now-available.html

It's getting very tiresome being a photoshop elements user and either not getting the camera raw updates in a timely manner or adobe cutting off elements from camera raw updates halfway through a particular versions life, not to mention the obnoxious ads adobe inserts in the photoshop elements workflow advertising the creative cloud or lightroom.

Obnoxious ad when one tries to open a camera raw file in pse 15 editor.



Anyway, i do appreciate your response.

Now camera raw 9.12 has been released.

Is pse 15 going to this update or is adobe going to cut off pse 15 from anymore camera raw updates like adobe does every year two or three months before a new version of pse is due out?
