Fireworks CS4 Patch is live now

Adobe Fireworks team is pleased to announce the release of Patch 2 which is a Macintosh only patch. The patch can be downloaded from or will be detected automatically via the Adobe Update Manager.

The automatic patch can be triggered via the menu item of Help->Updates. This will install the patch for users in a automatic mode instead of downloading the patch via the above mentioned url and then a manual click to install it.

The patch is expected to fix the “crash on exit” on exit for Snow Leopard. Apart from this bug there are many other stability related fixes which should make Fireworks CS4 a much stable app now.

The random crashes and vanishing of applications while designing should not be encountered anymore.
