Today at the MAX conference we announced the latest generation of our creative tools now known as CC including Photoshop CC, Dreamweaver CC, Flash Professional CC, Edge Animate CC, and many others. As you may have noticed this announcement did not include updates to Fireworks CS6.
Over the last couple of years, there has been an increasing amount of overlap in the functionality between Fireworks and both existing and new programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Edge Reflow. At the same time we have shifted to focus our engineering teams on building smaller, more modular, tools and services for specific tasks in web design. Due to this overlap and as well as our change in our product development focus, we have decided not to update Fireworks to CC and instead will focus on developing new tools to meet our customers needs.
I don't know whether these are misunderstandings, but the two major gripes I saw about this model yesterday were these. (1) One *must* be online to use the software. (2) Once one stops paying, simply, access to software is denied (no legacy software).
Thanks BeeDeeDubbleU. Considering I am having no issues with CS4 I think I will just save my $400 and not upgrade. What if I could find a copy of CS5, do you think it's worth going that route?I didn't have CS5 but I don't consider CS6 to have been worth the money. In some ways it has actually slowed me down and if I could turn the clock back I wouldn't buy it.
