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]

If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.
