Macromedia today announced it has launched Macromedia Exchange for Dreamweaver, a site dedicated to expanding the capabilities of its HTML authoring software, Dreamweaver. The site now contains more than 100 free, downloadable extensions for Dreamweaver, as well as a downloadable Extension Manager (required for the new extensions). It also offers information and discussions about extending the functionality of Dreamweaver.
Extensions on the exchange are put through a series of basic tests by Macromedia in order to ensure their functionality. These include testing installation, determining that the extension doesn't alter the user interface, determining that it does not harm the user's system and checking to see that it actually works as it's supposed to.
Some of the extensions featured on the site include a button maker, a menu slider and a calendar builder.
Atomz.com, a software developer, separately announced today that it has begun offering its search functionality for Dreamweaver authoring (both Mac and PC). The new extension, which can be found at http://www.atomz.com or the Dreamweaver Exchange, provides search and reporting capabilities. It's free for sites with fewer than 500 pages.
