Welcome to 2009

Wow- where did 2008 go? Between CS4 development and release, the MAX conference (a virtual blur) and the general holiday-season craziness of recent weeks I seem to have blinked and lost a few months in the process. But while I’ve been preoccupied, Dreamweaver CS4 continues to get great reviews and feedback, definitely one of our biggest DW releases in years as Ross Greenburg at Computer World reports:

“As for me, I immediately updated to CS4 as soon as I could. The enhancements over earlier releases, including CS3, are too compelling to be ignored — so I didn’t. The upgrade price makes this an absolute no-brainer. There’s a reason to consider this the latest and greatest version of CS4: Because it is.”

Aw- thanks, Ross!

Another recent set of articles that cover Dreamweaver CS4 at SitePoint are definitely worth reading if you’re still on the fence in picking up CS4- very well-balanced and even feedback on the release:

Good points in the last one – specifically the emerging best practice of putting <script> blocks before the closing </body> tag in order to prevent race conditions, i.e. when you may invoke JS on a element of your markup that hasn’t yet loaded.

Anyway- hope you had a great holiday season, and an even better 2009. I’ll try to be less infrequent in my postings over the next few months – honest – as I’ve got a lot of good DW tips/thoughts/etc to share in the New Year.
