First the disclaimer- I have only had Adobe CS4 installed for a few weeks and haven’t really dug deep deep down yet but I have had a play and I have updated some commercial work so I think I’m at a point of to be able to comments on the the CS4 update.
In Dreamweaver I love the new workspaces- it was always a pain for me that I couldn’t undock the panels and move them to the my second monitor so I have more design view room. So now that I have the option of dual screens
I love the having the code inspector open all the time big so as I edit in design view I can see properly whats happening in the code. No more split screen and having to scroll up and down continuously.
I also love that I can now open and tweak the original Photoshop documents that my images are based on directly from within Dreamweaver when previously this was only possible for Fireworks based images.
One thing that still hasn’t improved is Dreamweaver FTP client – while it may mean that I have accessed to feature such as collaborative features such as checking in and out it really is still painfully slowwwww!!!
Another feature which I like is the updated data set wizard which is a lot easier or at least seems alot easier now to add some ajax interactively. The movie below is a great intro and very easy to follow.
This is a great movie from Adobe on Web Widgets
PS: Welcome back
