Studio 8 Launched: New Versions of Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks

Title says it all. See the Studio 8 page for more details. And at 8:00 am on 8/8, what an incredible coincidence. 😉

    Maybe 8/8 has something to do with "8ball" codename 🙂

    Does anybody know where you can download the stand-alone version of Macromedia Player 8, so we can push it out to our end users?

    Ben, have you had an opportunity to use DW 8 yet? I am wondering about the migration from MX04 to 8. I am concerned because we have a lot of integration with existing production and development sites as well as source code management repositories. It was _very_ painful just upgrading to MX 04 from MX. Has MM addressed any of these issues?

    And another thing: Are you now able to copy and paste from the reference materials under the Code panel?

    All of the available details are on the product page I linked too. I cannot discuss specific features yet, but will in the future.
    Brian, the migration, for me, was painless.
    Steven, I use DW and HS (the former more than the latter).

    Now I wonder when it will get out of BETA. Is this another "soon" situation?

    Ben, can you address whether or not 8 fixes the issue of connecting to datasources using https that is present in MX and MX2004?

    Leo, if you didn’t get the package yet just refuse it. when they the package back they will cancel it. or call your credit card company that you received something you didn’t want:)
