New extensions bring additional Flash, accessibility features

by David Nagel

Adobe has released two new extensions for GoLive CS, the company's Web authoring and design tool. The new extensions bring additional support for Flash content and accessibility checking. Both are available now for Mac OS X and Windows. Adobe has also launched a new version of FrameMaker for Windows and Sun Solaris.

New for GoLive CS are two extensions--Advanced SWF Authoring and Watchfire WebXACT. The SWF Authoring extension adds new support for working with SWF files, including automatic routing to alternate viewing pages or plugin download pages. It also adds a tab to GoLive's SWF Inspector with new options. The WebXACT extension brings an interface to GoLive for that allows designers to test for accessibility and privacy issues using the Watchfire WebXACT online service. (Web pages must be located on a public server to use the service.)[an error occurred while processing this directive]In separate news, Adobe has also announced FrameMaker 7.1 for Windows and Sun Solaris.
