Adobe Systems Incorporated is introducing Adobe GoLive CS2, an authoring tool for Web and mobile content. Available as a stand-alone software application or as a component of the Adobe Creative Suite 2, GoLive CS2 introduces new CSS layout tools, a rich environment for mobile content development based on open standards and tight integration with Adobe Creative Suite 2 software applications.
The company says that with GoLive CS2, Web designers and developers can create, publish, manage, and update content that adapts to the latest generation of handheld devices.
GoLive CS2 provides new and enhanced tools that enable designers to work visually while automatically generating CSS code. Designers can now drag and drop pre-built, extensible CSS block objects onto Web pages to quickly construct classic liquid CSS designs. The new Layer and Grid Text Box tools enable designers to interactively place and size CSS-based layers and text boxes, while the enhanced Layout Grid, Layout Text Box, and Layer objects all produce CSS by default.
The package delivers comprehensive mobile authoring tools based on open standards to support mobile layout (CSS, XHTML), multimedia and interactivity (SVG, SVG-t), and video (3GPP, MPEG-4) for mobile devices. The new SVG-t Editor supports both SVG-t 1.1 and 1.2 and enables designers to use SVG-t files created in Adobe Illustrator CS2 and other applications, quickly select SVG elements and their source code and then add a wide range of interactivity.
GoLive also delivers MMS templating and editing environment and flexible device emulation for previewing content for Sony Ericsson and Nokia devices and is easily extensible to support other manufacturer handsets. The Live Rendering engine includes a new Small Screen Rendering option for previewing how content developed for the Web will appear on mobile devices.
The software Adobe GoLive CS2 is available for Mac OS X version 10.2.8 through 10.3.8, Java Runtime Environment 1.4.1, Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 or 4 or Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or 2, and will begin shipping in May to customers in the United States and Canada, and will be available through Adobe Authorized Resellers and the Adobe Store. International versions are expected to begin shipping in late May and early June. Estimated street prices for the full version will be US$399 and upgrade pricing starts at US$169.
