A bright future for Fireworks
Nearly a year ago I posted a blog entry called "Photoshop + Fireworks: Where to from here?" Customer response was immediate and overwhelming, making it my most commented-upon entry (thanks for all that feedback, by the way). At the time people were a little freaked out that Adobe would bury Fireworks, but I’m pleased to say that just the opposite has happened.
The app is finding new life as a great environment for rapid prototyping & quick interface development. At MAX in October the team demonstrated Fireworks creating an MXML layout for use in Flex, and now the Adobe Edge news letter has posted "A sparkling future for Fireworks." I’ll let you check out the article for complete details, but based on the comments made here, I think folks will really dig the enhanced Photoshop and Illustrator integration, among many other things.
