Gerüchteküche: Adobes "GoLive 9" für traditionelle Designer?

Möglicherweise wird die nächste Version von Adobes Web-Autorentool "GoLive" neu ausgerichtet für traditionelle Designer auf den Markt kommen und ein völlig neues "Illustrator"- bzw. "InDesign"-ähnliches Interface besitzen. Das jedenfalls berichtet die Web-Gerüchteküche "Think Secret" unter Berufung auf Insider.

"Adobe targeting traditional designers with GoLive CS3
By Ryan Katz, Senior Editor

July 12, 2006 - Adobe will take its GoLive Web site authoring software in a new direction when it releases version 9 as part of Creative Suite 3 next year, insiders have tipped off Think Secret. Having acquired Macromedia and its Dreamweaver application, which Adobe will continue to develop and target at professional Web designers, GoLive's focus will shift towards providing traditional graphic designers with a means to easily deliver their creations on the Web.

The most apparent change GoLive users will notice with version 9, code-named Vicious, is the new user interface. Since acquiring Cyberstudio from GoLive in 1999 (Adobe paid homage to the original development company by renaming the application after it), the application has always maintained elements of its original interface at the expense of inconsistency with Adobe's other Creative Suite components. Version 9 will do away with all of that, replacing the toolbar with one that mimics InDesign and Illustrator.

New Control Palettes will complement GoLive's new streamlined interface, dynamically changing their controls and settings depending on which tool is selected, while a new Text tool will also make it easier to quickly specify and adjust text formatting, sources said. Layer support is also said to be enhanced, and GoLive will also gain the "Place..." command in its File menu currently available to other Creative Suite applications, easing the process of adding and edit creations made in other Adobe programs.

GoLive 9, like the other Creative Suite 3 applications, will ship as a Universal Binary for PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. For information regarding Photoshop CS3 and Illustrator CS3, see Think Secret's March report.

Rumors flew in late May after an Adobe executive quoted by MacGeneration said that the company would discontinue development of GoLive. Adobe later asserted that it would continue to support GoLive but would concentrate its development efforts on Dreamweaver."

Adobe hat bereits angekündigt, dass "GoLive 9" nicht in der "Creative Suite" enthalten sein wird, sondern als separates Produkt zu erhalten sein wird.
