I'd thought it was abandonware, but apparently, Adobe is still selling version 5.5 (so, no updates in YEARS), for $99 USD.
I'll use notepad, or pspad, in a pinch, but when it comes to cranking out big chunks of HTML, I always run back to HomeSite.
Now, we all know that industry types actually pay attention to what gets said here (which is one of the nice things about WebmasterWorld, really), so I was wondering how many people here still rely on HomeSite?
And how many would love to see it updated. And what would those updates be?
- Better support for Modern CSS
- A preview tab that lets you render in as many browsers as you have installed on your system.
I mean, come on Adobe, how hard would it be to put a little love into a product that must be a slow but steady revenue stream? Almost $100 a copy for software that hasn't been touched in, what, 5 years? Longer?
I'm not sure if I would upgrade it or not as I have other tools that I use for the things HomeSite can't do. Now, if they would have kept up with updates and the "other" tools didn't fall into daily use it would be a different story.

At my consulting gig I use Studio 4.5.
As for updates, I guess the only thing I might ask for is a function for setting the version of Cold Fusion you're coding for.
Stefan van As is the current developer of TopStyle. If you're a Homesite fan, TopStyle might be something to look at. The new beta [svanas.dynip.com] is quite impressive.
