Adobe Introduces GoLive 6.0

Adobe Systems, Inc. has announced the release of Adobe GoLive 6.0 and its Adobe Web Workgroup Server, both in one package. Adobe GoLive 6.0 software offers site management and collaboration capabilities, wireless authoring, and support for incorporating print and video content in the Web design cycle. According to the announcement, this new version delivers features that improve team collaboration and help creative professionals develop content and deliver assets to different outlets in less time with greater efficiency.

GoLive's Web Workgroup Server is a site management and collaboration tool that allows multiple users to track changes and share and manage files. It also provides version control and side-by-side comparison capabilities, including the ability to roll back to previous versions. According to the announcement, the Web Workgroup Server supports any WebDAV-enabled application such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Macromedia Dreamweaver and accelerates Web project development without forcing designers to change their existing process.

Web professionals can develop content for mobile devices with GoLive's new wireless authoring capabilities, including support for XHTML, CHTML, and WML. In the Windows environment, GoLive offers built-in emulators for Nokia WAP and XHTML phones and NTT DoCoMo i-mode phones.

GoLive 6.0 integrates with Adobe's family of professional design products, including Adobe InDesign, LiveMotion, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Working in conjunction with InDesign 2.0 (expected to ship the first quarter of this year), it enables customers to adapt print content to the Web using intuitive XML tags.

Other new Web development features include a full QuickTime 5.0 editing environment with streaming conversion and optimization capabilities. GoLive also provides a visual-authoring environment that utilizes video; audio; SWF; SVG; and support for W3C standards like SMIL, which in turn are supported by RealNetworks' RealOne player. This new version includes the ability to deliver database-driven content and native support for common dynamic scripting languages such as PHP, ASP, and JSP. These extensive server-side scripting capabilities enable developers to link front-end Web designs with back-end systems for e-commerce solutions.
