What’s new in Dreamweaver CS5.5

Some product releases are revolutionary, and some are evolutionary. It’s a bit more rare that they can be both. Whereas the Dreamweaver CS5.5 release may seem simply evolutionary given the “point-five” version number, the features contained within are highly focused to help you spark your own project-based multiscreen revolution, while only requiring a minor evolutionary shift in the Dreamweaver workflows and your own, finely-honed skills as a web pro. With HTML5 and CSS3 driving a new level of cross-device consistency—as well as adding significant new media and design capabilities independently—Dreamweaver CS 5.5 support for both will help you take your projects to a new level, regardless of whether you’re starting with an existing project that needs to become mobile application aware, or diving in on a mobile-specific site or application from scratch.

Rendering and preview

Although it won’t be apparent from reading the back of the box, Dreamweaver CS 5.5 Live View and Design View have both been updated to take advantage of the most current builds of Webkit, the rendering engine powering both the Safari and Chrome desktop browsers, as well as the lion’s share of mobile browsers to boot. This ensures that you get the most representative preview of your projects across desktop and mobile devices—and be able to visually author richer HTML5- and CSS3-based experiences with more confidence than ever before. But enough about the pretty pictures, let’s look at some of the features that will help you exercise Dreamweaver’s visual previews to their fullest extent.
