Adobe to Drop GoLive, FreeHand

Adobe to Drop GoLive, FreeHand

by , 7:45 AM EDT, May 31st, 2006

Adobe Systems France announced at Adobe Live that the development of GoLive and FreeHand will be phased out. Adobe representative Robert Raiola stated that Dreamweaver will get a new interface and replace GoLive as the Web development application in the Creative Suite 3 package, due out in spring 2007.

According to a report at Macsimum News, which is based on an article at the French MacGeneration, Adobe committed to supporting the two lame duck applications for the time being. In fact, an update for FreeHand will be released some time this year.

The demise of FreeHand and GoLive isn't exactly a surprise considering that FreeHand competes directly with Illustrator, and GoLive competes with Dreamweaver. Prior to Adobe's purchase of Macromedia in December 2005, FreeHand languished with little support while Macromedia focused on its Web and multimedia products like Flash and Dreamweaver.
