Adobe Systems Inc yesterday said it has started shipping the latest versions of its GoLive and LiveMotion web animation and design applications. Announced earlier this year, the products are targeted more than ever at users of tools from rival Macromedia Inc.

LiveMotion 2.0, the latest version of its web graphics design tool, includes the ability to automatically translate JavaScript into ActionScript, the language developed by Macromedia for use with Flash.

This move is designed to make the product more attractive to web developers already familiar with the more popular JavaScript, who do not want to have to learn ActionScript. LiveMotion now features a script editor with a debugger, to simplify the process of programming animations and interfaces.

GoLive 6.0 is being bundled with Adobe's Web Workgroup Server for the first time. The server-side addition, new to Adobe's catalog, enables easier collaboration for larger development teams working on the same site. The server software is compatible with any WebDAV-enabled applications, including its own Illustrator and Photoshop packages, and rival Macromedia Inc's Dreamweaver site design tool.
