Adobe GoLive 5 Ships -- Adobe has begun shipping Adobe GoLive 5, its flagship Web design package. The new version adds a number of features that better reflect the way Web sites are now designed and deployed: the Design feature enables fast site diagramming and prototyping; Dynamic Link makes it easy to tie information stored in a database to Web pages; 360Code ensures that existing HTML isn't reformatted by GoLive; and the WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) implementation enables version control and asset management for design teams working on the same project. GoLive also includes Smart Objects that make it possible to drag Photoshop, Illustrator, or LiveMotion files onto a page and dynamically update them later without going through the process of repeatedly exporting Web-ready copies. GoLive 5 is available now as an electronic download for $299. Owners of PageMill or earlier versions of GoLive can upgrade for $99; a competitive upgrade of $149 is also offered to owners of Macromedia Dreamweaver or Microsoft FrontPage. The program requires a PowerPC-based Mac running Mac OS 8.6 or later, and at least (but preferably more than) 48 MB of available RAM. [JLC]
Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008
If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.
