Im using the 2004 version. I was wondering if anyone is using the latest one released and the pros and cons....

thanks in advance.

I am using DW8 and the biggest advantage is in its improved handling of CSS.

the one advantage i found about DW8, is it enables you to open several files at once..although if you open several thousand at once, expect your computer to run slow and you'll most likely have to wait a while for all the files to load, unless you have a superduperextrahighpowermegefast computer.

Well they always add new features to the new versions that are worth the upgrade. There is a great comparison chart at adobe you can use to see for yourself if it's worth the upgrade. Check it out here:

I am using 9.0.. my favorite new feature is the "synchronize" button. Put always wants to try to upload dependent files and it was annoying, with sync it will tell you what files are newer and ask you what you want to do. So much better.

I am sure you can use all the new Spry stuff in 8.0, but I have been loving Spry lately and have all my forms and everything posting and reading using slick Ajax stuff they put together. You can get latest Spry stuff at the Adobe Labs site. HTML Panel is nice, as are of the XML photo galleries.

The one thing they are STILL missing and I can't believe it but site wide spell checker is still not available.

Thanks for the reply. I am thinking of buying the package that includes flash as well as the latest version.

I am working on a new site which I see great potential in and that is why I want to get everything right from the very beginning.
