Next gen authoring for Web and mobile platforms

Adobe introduces next generation authoring for Web and mobile platforms with GoLive CS2

Innovative CSS layout tools, standards-based mobile authoring support, and tight Adobe Creative Suite 2 integration usher in new era for Web and mobile design

Sydney, Australia - Adobe Systems today announced Adobe® GoLive® CS2, a powerful authoring tool for Web and mobile content. Available as a stand-alone software application or as a component of the Adobe Creative Suite 2, also announced today (see separate press release), GoLive CS2 introduces innovative new CSS layout tools, a rich environment for mobile content development based on open standards and tight integration with Adobe Creative Suite 2 software applications. With GoLive CS2, Web designers and developers can create, publish, manage, and update content that adapts gracefully to the latest generation of handheld devices.

"GoLive is now at the leading edge of cross-media content authoring, eliminating the gap between what can be delivered on the Web and what can be authored for mobile devices," said Shantanu Narayen, president and chief operating officer at Adobe. "The future of the Web is being driven by millions of consumers who are demanding graphically-rich Internet services on their handsets and GoLive will be at the centre of this content revolution."

Innovative visual CSS authoring
GoLive CS2 unlocks the full potential of CSS with new and enhanced tools that enable designers to work visually while automatically generating lean, efficient CSS code. Designers 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. The 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.

Standards-based mobile authoring
Adobe GoLive CS2 delivers comprehensive mobile authoring tools based on open standards to support 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 also delivers 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.

Tight integration with Adobe Creative Suite 2
Repurposing print content for the Web is easier than ever with GoLive CS2. Designers can now package print assets in InDesign CS2; open, preview, and optimise that content in GoLive CS2; and then export automatically as XHTML Web pages. This jump-starts Web designs, which can then be finessed and site-managed in GoLive CS2. In addition, Smart Object support is extended to include easy creation of smart favourite icons, used in URL addresses and Favourites Menus to brand websites. GoLive CS2 includes Adobe Bridge which functions as a hub for productivity, imagery and creativity, providing multi-view file browsing and smooth cross-product integration across Adobe Creative Suite 2 software. Adobe Bridge also provides access to Adobe Stock Photos (see separate press release) bringing a world of royalty-free stock imagery directly into Web and mobile authoring workflows.

Pricing and availability
Adobe GoLive CS2 for Mac OS X version 10.2.8 through 10.3.8, Java Runtime Environment 1.4.1, Microsoft® Windows® 2000 with Service Pack 3 or 4 or Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or 2, will begin shipping in late May / early June to customers in Australia and New Zealand, and will be available through Adobe Authorised Resellers.
