Good news out of the Adobemedia forums from the Fireworks Product Manager:
Fireworks continues to be an important product to the combined Macromedia/Adobe portfolio and is actively under product development for a yet-to-be announced product release.
Fireworks has some annoying bugs, still, but there’s so much that it does right that no other application can do quite as well. I’m glad to see that it’s not the lame duck most (including me) thought it was.
This article entitled “Why Choose Fireworks?” is a good read.
Maybe Fireworks 9 will finally let me nudge font sizes using the keyboard.
