Macromedia Studio 8

Posted: August 8th, 2005 | Author: | Filed under: Apple | 62 Comments »

MacMerc points to Macromedia Studio 8 which includes Dreamweaver 8, Flash Professional 8, Fireworks 8, Contribute 3 and FlashPaper 2.

It will be interesting to see what impact Adobe has had on the product line after its purchase of Macromedia. I’m a bit suprised to still see Fireworks alive and kicking, but I guess it makes sense given the level of integration and look and feel between the different Macromedia products. This may be the last independent Macromedia Studio release, but I could be dead wrong.

There’s a lot of overlap between Macromedia and Adobe products (Indesign vs. Dreamweaver, Photoshop vs. Fireworks, etc), and I think it’s just a matter of time before some products get their red stapler taken away from them.

From the feature tour it looks like Dreamweaver has taken some cues from InDesign with some very photoshop-esque guides. It is also great to see Dreamweaver finally start to focus on CSS-based design over table layout. It also looks like Dreamweaver is able to parse and display RSS feeds, as you can see about 3/4 through the feature tour. Interesting stuff.

    I’m holding off on upgrading until they integrate, especially since I may switch platforms between now and then.

    Anyone who’s really used Fireworks will tell you that it’s a different beast than Photoshop. I’m not holding my breath that Adobe will keep it, but I hope Photoshop will at least get a few cues from its (IMO superior) work flow.

    “InDesign vs. Dreamweaver”??

    GoLive vs. Dreamweaver
    InDesign is a page layout program.

    Captcha is certainly one of the best techniques against auto bot registration but xrumer will destory it with is amazing power. Certainly one of the most widespread spam behavior is auto account registration on forums e.g Xrumer. These bots intend to post advertising messages with out manual control and so so really successfully with xrumer. Tools like Xrumer are dedicated for this purpose. Thus, it is possible to set up captcha against bot registration. Alternatively, setting up anti-spam questions that appear randomly will also be helpful but it real wont work mainly because xrumer is king. Xrumer
