Today it has been announced that Adobe is to buy Macromedia for $3.4 billion!
The official announcement:
This means proper Flash integration in programs, and possbily extra flames from the bonfire with Fireworks, Freehand and Director jobs already taken within the Adobe suite.
InDesign, GoLive… maybe they’ll get an upgrade? Who knows…
Also for people who think “Oh no Adobe owns Macromedia now”; Microsoft and IBM where both in the running for buying Macromedia. So don’t complain too much, you might have had to learn .Net programming just to colourise a photograph!
