Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the first public preview of Adobe® Edge Reflow, a new responsive design tool for Web designers and developers creating websites and content for screens of virtually all sizes. In addition, the company released new feature updates for Adobe Edge Animate, Adobe Dreamweaver® and Adobe Edge Code preview. All today’s announced product releases are available exclusively to Adobe Creative Cloud™ members.
Adobe Edge Reflow is a new responsive Web design tool for creating layout and visual designs with CSS and is available immediately as a preview at no charge in Creative Cloud. Edge Reflow features an intuitive resizable design surface that shows how layouts and visuals will adapt to different screen sizes. Leveraging the power of CSS, Edge Reflow enables users to create high fidelity Web designs on the application’s native Web surface. It maintains the design vision, through development, by allowing users to preview in the browser, inspect their design in real-time via Edge Inspect extension, and extract the CSS for use in Edge Code, Dreamweaver or any code editor. During the preview period, Adobe is actively seeking user feedback for Edge Reflow in order to help evolve the product. Users are encouraged to submit their feedback to Adobe through Github at https://github.com/edge-reflow/issues.
Adobe also announced important updates to Adobe Edge Animate to give it powerful new CSS-based features, including gradients, CSS filters, and enhanced font support. Users will now be able to style and animate elements using radial or linear gradients, and preview Edge Web Fonts* live in a new interface. New CSS filter support for Edge Animate allows users to take advantage of exciting CSS capabilities found in modern WebKit browsers, including blur, greyscale, sepia, brightness, contrast, hue-rotate, invert and saturate filters. Previously, filter effects could only be achieved using tools like Adobe Photoshop®.
In addition, Adobe delivered an update to Adobe Dreamweaver exclusively for Creative Cloud members that improves interoperability with the Adobe Edge Tools & Services family and includes several new features to enhance code authoring ability and workflow. Fluid grid layout, a feature first introduced with Adobe Dreamweaver CS6, now allows developers to leverage class tags in addition to ID tags and features a new editing interface. Developers can also now easily preview, select and incorporate Edge Web Fonts into their Dreamweaver projects.
This preview release of Adobe Edge Code includes features such as Live Development, which allows users to see changes in the browser immediately as they make code edits, and also Quick Edit, which lets users edit code in context instead of switching between files. This latest update adds code hinting for CSS properties and HTML tags and attributes, making this release an even more productive code editor for web designers and developers working with Web standards.
Paul Gubbay, vice president of product development, Digital Media business, Adobe
- “The job of a Web designer and developer has become more challenging, with Web standards progressing rapidly and the number of screen sizes and form factors increasing exponentially. Adobe Creative Cloud enables our teams to deliver product innovation to our customers the moment that new features are ready, helping designers and developers tackle the new challenges of the modern Web and more seamlessly create websites and interactive content for the latest browsers and different screen sizes.”

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
