Even More Good News for Fireworks

The recent post by Danielle Beaumont was a great boost to my hopes for the future of Fireworks. Further down that thread, Dave Storey - also from Adobe - had this to say: "... I think Fireworks is a great addition to the Adobe product line, and plays an important part in many workflows for our customers." "It turns out many of the doomsayers were wrong when they forecast the end of Fireworks." If these words aren't inspirational, I do not know what is. Adobe has been pretty mum on the topic of software app survival, but it now seems that FW isn't going to be booted off the island very soon. I for one, am very happy to hear this kind of talk right from the source. ... ... (more)

JavaFX.com is DHTML Heaven

I just visited the (new?) JavaFX site in order to keep up to date on how the new kid to the Flash/Silverlight/"Rich” block was doing, and I was presented with an interesting site indeed. Make sure to click some of the “Resource” links on the right to get the full experience. The whole thing is built in HTML and JavaScript, with the odd Quicktime player for good measure. Unfortunately the site creeks along at 100% CPU with jerky transitions, ugly styling and flickering madness as the browser can’t figure out what to render, with Quicktime movie’s and HTML Divs strobing in and out of existence as you drag panels around. So far not a great impression given. I understand it’s possibly too early for them to have built the site in JavaFX itself perhaps, given that the examples all launch using Java WebStart, that archaic and most user-frightening of technologies. But ther... (more)
