Yesterday Adobe CS3 was announced. GoLive was nowhere to be found. I’ve been a GoLive user since 1999. This very site was designed with GoLive. My brother was a big GoLive fan dating back to 1998. However, I spent many a numerous nights fighting with GoLive’s component feature. Stupid thing was so buggy.
With the release of CS3, I thought Adobe killed GoLive. However, JB brought to my attention that GoLive 9 will be released in Spring 2007. It’s simply not a part of CS3.
GoLive isn’t dead, but it’s good as dead now. GoLive went into a coma when Adobe bought Macromedia. Now that Dreamweaver is in CS3 and GoLive isn’t, I’d say that Adobe has moved GoLive out of the hospital and into the middle of an abandoned desert. The only thing running GoLive’s life support is an old car battery. It’s only a matter of time now.
