Both Adobe and Microsoft released pre-anouncements for next week's patch Tuesday.

Microsoft is working on having a patch available for the Internet Explorer 8 0-day vulnerability. [1] There are two critical Internet Explorer patches, one specifically for Internet Explorer 8, and the other one for all current versions. The later (refered to as "Bulletin 1" by Microsoft) is likely the usual roll up patch. 

There are the only two critical bulletins next week. The rest covers "the usual" (Office, Windows, Lynx and Windows Essentials) and is rated important.

Adobe announced only one bulletin for Acrobat and PDF Reader. There is no patch scheduled for Cold Fusion at this point.
