Dreamweaver Extensibility is alive and well

The Adobe Exchange has extensions for Dreamweaver and other Adobe products:

A few years ago, the number of uploads and downloads of DW extensions on the Exchange slowed to a crawl because the web site was, uh, a bit challenged. OK, it sucked. But the web site has been redesigned, so please give it another look. I currently see 1,408 extensions for DW.
Also, there are many Dreamweaver extensions written by third party developers that do not get uploaded to the Exchange, so be sure to search the web for more. There are too many good developers to list them all here, and I don’t want to play favorites :)

Attention Extension Developers

I’m giving a presentation on Extensibility Options in Dreamweaver CS3 at MAX 2007 in a couple hours, and I’ve got extensibility on the brain. For those of you who are developing extensions but aren’t at MAX, I wanted to ask: What kinds of extensions are you developing? What JSAPI functions (or enhancements to existing functions) do you wish were available? When trying to figure out what your options are, do you mostly search the Configuration folder for examples, read the paper version of the documentation, or search the online version?

Please let me know what you’re up to in the comments, so I can get a broader picture of what’s going on with those of you out there in the real world. Thanks!
