Adobe Officially Kills GoLive

Adobe Officially Kills GoLive

by , 8:25 AM EDT, April 29th, 2008

After moving GoLive out to pasture after the release of Creative Suite 3, Adobe finally moved the Web site design application to the digital dustbin on Monday. Adobe stated that it chose to stop GoLive development and support "so we can instead focus our development and sales resources on our market-leading web design and development application, Adobe Dreamweaver."

After purchasing Macromedia, Adobe replaced GoLive with Dreamweaver when it released Creative Suite 3. Even though GoLive maintained a strong and loyal following in the Web design community, it did not share Dreamweaver's level of popularity.

Adobe continued to offer GoLive as a digital download, but stopped promoting the product, and even made it difficult to find on its Web site.

GoLive users that make the switch to Dreamweaver are being offered some transition assistance at the Adobe Web site. Several resources, including the GL2DW Site Migration Extension and GL2DW Site Migration Extension Guide, and video-based training from Lynda.com are available at the site.

Adobe is also offering GoLive users special pricing when moving to Dreamweaver at US$199 for retail and government users, and $99 for educational users.
