Fireworks CS5 Barely Gets A Mention At Adobe’s CS5 Launch
Remember when Fireworks CS4 came out and you felt slightly punched in the face by Adobe because all of their other major applications got awesome features and all Fireworks got was bugs? I do.
Adobe announced Creative Suite 5 yesterday and it seems as though Fireworks was once again overshadowed by Photoshop’s new features and all of the other new features in their other applications. Not everyone likes using Photoshop for web design, what about us Fireworks users?
They’ve finally fixed the bugs in Fireworks and incompatibilities with exporting files and importing Photoshop files, illustrator files and other Adobe formats. It’s about damn time. Fireworks was not mentioned at all in the release broadcast, and if you look in the products drop-down on the Adobe site, you can’t even see Fireworks in the list. The only mention of Fireworks CS5 is on Bruce Bowman’s blog post about it here.
Makes me wonder if Fireworks CS5 is merely all of the bug fixes from CS3 and CS4 with a couple of new features thrown in.
