Adobe coughs up CS4 public betas

Test drive Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Soundbooth

High performance access to file storage

Adobe Systems is today releasing public beta versions of its Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Soundbooth apps.

The betas have been spat out by Adobe ahead of the company’s upcoming Creative Suite 4 release that will come bundled with the web design, web prototyping and audio editing tools.

The firm said the betas are available to anyone wanting to test the products. However they will only be active for 48 hours after download, and after that only Creative Suite 3 customers will be able to continue using them.

Features in the Dreamweaver beta include Code Navigator and a Related Files Toolbar that allows developers to view pages containing links to embedded XML data, JavaScript docs and HTML files.

The Fireworks beta is compatible with the firm’s rich web product Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) as well as Flash, HTML and Flex builder.

Soundbooth’s beta comes loaded with audio production features that include a speech-to-text option, multiple track support to edit audio clips and to tweak volume levels across audio files. MP3 compression settings can also be previewed before users save the file.

Creative Suite 4 is expected to ship late this year or in early 2009. ®
