New Tryouts at Adobe Labs

For you web developers out there, Adobe has just recently made betas available for Dreamweaver CS4, Fireworks CS4, and Soundbooth CS4. These can be downloaded over at Adobe Labs. Just remember, they are beta so there is always the chance of mishaps here and there. At any rate, it’s a great way to get to know the program and perhaps provide some feedback so they can make the program better for your needs. Also if you have never been to the Adobe Labs site before, you really ought to look around. All the newest stuff that Adobe develops is on this site. You never know what you might find. Check it out and have fun.

    As one who wanted to familiarize myself with Dreamweaver by downloading the beta release, I’m a bit disappointed that the trial period is a scant two days. Back when I downloaded the Lightroom 1 beta, I was able to comfortably learn it to the point where I just had to buy the full release when it became available. I’m not optimistic that two days will be enough time to convince me that Dreamweaver will be a must-have program.

    I might add the comment that CS3 is required to enjoy a full test drive as opposed to the two days otherwise. I am still running CS2 at our office and therefore not worth my effort to download and install.

    There was a post in John Nacks blog http://blogs.adobe.com/ that there’s a computer glitch for, as I recall, all trial downloads. Instead of the usual 30 days its just a day or 2 which is not their normal trial period. And they’re going to fix the glitch at some point in time, I presume by July.

    I went to try the Dreamweaver trial but it was going to take awhile.

    I downloaded the Dreamweaver trial, all looking really nice. However… I still think they have a long way to go to sort out the FTP problems though, it still hangs and times out when syncing. For me this can add hours on to my day and is very frustrating. I just hope Adobe fix this problem, its been there since day dot
