The Dreamweaver team has released a technology preview of the Dreamweaver CS5 HTML5 Pack extension.
This extension provides initial support for HTML5 and CSS3 in Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, and helps you easily create HTML5 pages and CSS3 styles. It also includes updates and WebKit improvements for Design View and Live View rendering. While HTML5 and CSS3 will not be finalized for some time, the extension provides support for a set of currently-implemented features. Dreamweaver CS5 users can download the extension now from Adobe Labs.

  1. CF users can generate HTML5 and CSS3 and anything else they want right now. What would an HTML5 pack for CF do? Do you mean changing any HTML and CSS generated by CF? If so, I don’t think that that will happen until a major version update.

  2. Thanks for your quick response.
    But I was asking for CF Builder, the "Eclipseâ„¢ based IDE that enables developers to build ColdFusion applications faster than ever before". 😉
    HTML5 code hinting for CF Builder would be great.

  3. Oh, duh! 🙂
    Yep, we need that, and it will happen, but I don’t know the schedule. We do plan on revising CFB far more frequently than we do CF itself, so should be sooner rather than later.

  4. It’s almost 2012, ColdFusion Builder 2 is heavily marketed. But it’s still not possible to really use it, given the lack of support of HTML5. How can you create CFML without using HTML? Shape up, Adobe!
    Really prefer to use ColdFusion Builder, but the lack of HTML5 support still keeps me stuck to Dreamweaver. 🙁
