If you're a GoLive user (as I am), you have been worried ever since the merger about the future of the program. When Adobe finally announced the demise of FreeHand, hope was quickly draining. Well, take this little bit of info to the bank:
Adobe has released GoLive 9.
And would you believe it if I told you that the upgrade is actually quite a full one? The interface has been updated, the visual CSS stuff is pretty cool, and the look and feel actually match somewhat what you see in InDesign (for example, GoLive now has a Place function). And yes, it's Universal Binary and runs native on Intel-based Macs. It also supports Vista (although not the consumer versions). It's available via download only, and also has a free 30-day trial version.
For me, GoLive was always about the wonderful Smart Object integration with Illustrator (and Photoshop -- but mainly Illustrator). So I'm happy to see that I can at least stick to my Smart Object workflow for the time being.
But one look at Adobe's website and you'll see that every page that mentions GoLive 9 also features 3 or 4 links to documents or sites or resources on switching to Dreamweaver. I think it's odd how in one sentence you tout the new features of GoLive 9, and in the very next sentence, you offer reasons why you should switch from GoLive to Dreamweaver. Reminds me of when I was younger and when my parents tried to give me medicine (which of course I wouldn't want any part of). I would much rather have ice cream of course. And so my parents would say "fine, here's some ice cream" but of course, they would pour the medicine over the ice cream as if it were hot fudge. And we ate it.
Things haven't changed much since then, has it?
