Updated: Adobe discontinues GoLive to concentrate on Dreamweaver
"Adobe acquired GoLive in 1999 from GoLive CyberStudio," Fernandez says. "As time wore on, a lot of creative pros become more experienced and their skill set at web design improved. At Abode we recognized that lots of GoLive users were starting to graduate to DreamWeaver."
In 2005, Adobe bought Macromedia and its high end web development tool, Dreamweaver. GoLive was replaced by Dreamweaver in Creative Suite 3.
"In same time frame as were were launching Creative Suite 3, I was working on GoLive 9," Fernandez says. "The target was a community of non-coding designers. But even after the version 9 update, we continued to see a migration of GoLive users to Dreaamweaver."
Adobe is offering an US$199 upgrade price for GoLive users to switch to Dreamweaver, which is about a $200 savings off the street price of Dreamweaver. The company will also be offering tech resources -- such as video tutorials and a GoLive extension -- to help with the switch. The company will continue phone tech support for GoLive through October.
