CS 4 and Web Widgets

Hi Spry:fans,
Just wanted to let you all know that the CS4 products are now available!
You got sneak peak with the public beta but now you can have it for real.
Check out the Adobe home page for more info.
I mentioned last time about the new Spry widgets and also the excellent upgrade on the Spry Data Set Wizard.

One new feature that I wanted to mention is somewhat Spry related.
Spry has some good widgets but the Dreamweaver team recognizes that there are hundreds if not thousands of other excellent widgets. We now have a mechanism to get them into DW.

We have been working on the web widgets feature. This is first:
A set of widgets from (gasp) other frameworks that can now be loaded into Dreamweaver CS4.
These widgets can be downloaded from the Exchange:

Phatfusion is first out the door with some real high quality widgets. Thanks to Sam for his efforts in converting his widgets into Dreamweaver extensions!
Hot on his heels will be extensions from YUI and jQuery UI. Keep your eye out for them.

They were created by the second web widget point: The web widget Packager.
This is an extension for Dreamweaver that will take a widget XML file and create the extension automatically.
Check out the details here:
Now anyone can create widget extension for Dreamweaver.
