It’s Official: Acrobat 8 and DreamWeaver In, GoLive is Out
Adobe announced today that Acrobat 8 Professional will ship in Creative Suite version 2.3, which is scheduled to be released before the end of the year. Dreamweaver 8 will also be included in the upgrade. This confirms a longstanding rumor that Dreamweaver is replacing GoLive in the Creative Suite. However, Adobe also noted that GoLive will still be developed as a standalone product.
Acrobat 8 Professional adds several important features for creative professionals, including a print engine and transparency flattener controls shared with the rest of the Suite.
Adobe expects the upgrade from CS2 to CS2.3 to cost $159 (sounds like a pretty good deal if you want but don’t currently own Dreamweaver). You can find more information in Adobe’s press release.
