I’ll be adding the Macromedia Developer Relations Podcast (found via moockblog) to my regular podcast list tonight. It appears to lean towards Flash, which isn’t a bad thing, but I hope they will spend some time discussing the new features in the recently released Studio 8. I am really interested in the changes and additions to Dreamweaver’s code view (I don’t find the design view very useful).
The current release documentation shows that they finally added a tabbed document interface for the Mac – about bloody time. Also, some of the useful functions that have been available in HomeSite for years have finally been added to Dreamweaver, including Code Collapse, which is incredibly helpful when working on large files. Site relative references, background file transfers (no more waiting on an upload/download to keep working) and file comparison are a tasty icing atop the upgrade cake.
