Macromedia unveils Studio 8

San Francisco-based Macromedia Inc. on Monday will announce Studio 8, the newest version of the company’s suite of applications for content authoring. Studio 8 sheds FreeHand, but adds two other applications giving the suite a better mix for its target customer, according to the company. Studio 8 now includes Dreamweaver 8; Flash Professional 8 (including a new Flash 8 Video Encoder); Fireworks 8; Contribute 3; and FlashPaper 2.

There is only one application I get excited about more then Photoshop, and that is Dreamweaver.

MacCentral has a preview of the new Dreamweaver, Flash, and Fireworks. Dreamweaver just looks amazing.

After looking at the new features of the entire suite, I will be plunking down the $399 for the upgrade to Studio 8.

I am very interested to see the new text rendering engine in Flash 8 Professional. I am glad they "unsplit" Flash, last release had a Pro and non pro version, which I thought was pretty dumb.

As for the new Dreamweaver, the new background FTP is about time. The redesigned CSS panel looks great as well. The visual tools for CSS development look outstanding. The Mac version now finally has a tabbed interface for open documents too. Thats another "its about time" feature, as the Windows version of Dreamweaver has had this feature for some time now. New coding tools look great. This looks like a really solid upgrade for Dreamweaver, and may be some foreshadowing in regards to GoLive.
