Fireworks CS5 had showcased this feature but had to be pulled in the last moments due to stability issues. Engineers worked on the feature where the png file when crashed, can be recovered and the user will be prompted to recover it the next time Fireworks launches.
On the next launch of Fireworks, it will alert that the files have been recovered. There are cases when the recovered file will need to be re-saved to ensure some smaller things like previews which are not saved when recovering the file.
I remembered one crash where Fireworks CS5 used to crash on editing a symbol which had an empty name. This crash is also fixed along with the other crashes fixed for Fw CS5.1 release.
This is part 1 of the series which goes diving into the different engineering efforts done for Fireworks CS5.1 release. Takashi Morifusa (Fireworks product manager) listed the complete set of changes on the team blog.
There are several crashes which have been fixed for Fw CS5.1 release. The major buckets under which crashes have been fixed are:
How do we know crashes in these areas?
Adobe Crash reporter pops up when a crash is encountered. Some of the users report the crash which send us the call stack of the crashing function. This helps the engineers debug the actual function and fix it.
We request all customers to submit all the crash reports. We consciously spare engineering time on fixing crash buckets for every release and Crash reporter helps us in identifying the crashes which are most commonly encountered by you all.
Some users are generous in including their email address and writing in comments which has helped us immensely in the past in reproducing the issue internally and then fixing them at the grass root level. We have worked with a few users like this in the past.
Some files when opened were leading to a crash, which has been fixed now. I personally remember working with a few customers who send in the Fireworks png files and helped us nail down the issue.
The release of CS5.5 brings out interesting pricing offerings to Adobe customers. Instead of paying upfront the huge cost which cannot be managed by freelancers or college grads, they can just buy it for a month and continue as they use. Almost suites can be purchased via this new means including almost all individual applications.
