Fireworks is alive and well in CS5

If you were able to watch the CS5 Launch event today, you might have wondered what happened to Fireworks.

You weren't alone.

I'm very happy to say though, that Fireworks CS5 is alive and well - and AWESOME! Fast, stable and easier to use than ever, the Fireworks team did an amazing job fixing bugs (900+) and addressing legacy issues.

Over the next couple weeks, I'll be releasing a series of videos showing you some of the new features and enhancements, starting with a summary of my top features, which will be out early this week.

I'm also relieved I can finally say, I've been writing the new Fireworks CS5 Classroom in a Book. It's been fun - and challenging - and I think this version is even better than my first go-round for the CS4 Classroom in a Book.

So even though Adobe didn't say anything in the launch, I can safely say that you will be very happy with the CS5 version of Fireworks.

For a quick heads up, check out Bruce Bowman's article on the Fireworks Developers Center.
