Adobe announced today Adobe GoLive CS2, a powerful authoring tool for Web and mobile content, and Adobe InCopy CS2, a professional writing and editing program that integrates tightly with Adobe InDesign CS2.
GoLive CS2 can now drag and drop pre-built, extensible CSS block objects onto Web pages to quickly construct classic liquid CSS designs that previously took considerable time to produce. New Layer and Grid Text Box tools enable designers to interactively place and size CSS-based layers and text boxes, while the enhanced Layout Grid, Layout Text Box, and Layer objects all produce CSS by default.
Adobe GoLive CS2 adds support for mobile layout (CSS, XHTML), multimedia and interactivity (SVG, SVG-t), and video (3GPP, MPEG-4) for mobile devices. The new SVG-t Editor supports both SVG-t 1.1 and 1.2 and enables designers to use SVG-t files created in Adobe Illustrator CS2 and other applications, quickly select SVG elements and their source code and then add a wide range of interactivity. GoLive promises a robust MMS templating and editing environment and flexible device emulation for previewing content for Sony Ericsson and Nokia devices and is easily extensible to support other manufacturer handsets. The Live Rendering engine includes a new Small Screen Rendering option for previewing how content developed for the Web will appear on mobile devices.
Adobe GoLive CS2 for Mac OS X version 10.2.8 through 10.3.8 and Java Runtime Environment 1.4.1 will begin shipping in May to customers in the United States and Canada, and will be available through Adobe Authorized Resellers and the Adobe Store. International versions are expected to begin shipping in late May and early June. Estimated street prices for the full version will be USD$399 and upgrade pricing starts at USD$169.
InCopy CS2 introduces an assignments-based workflow, which enables one or more editors to work in parallel with the designer on different parts of an InDesign file, without overwriting each other’s changes. New graphics controls and editorial enhancements further refine the collaborative workflow. Using InCopy CS2 and InDesign CS2 together enables fewer review and revision cycles between designers and editors, better editorial control over copy, and ultimately gets publications to market faster.
