Adobe GoLive 6 Arrives Soon

Web Workgroup Server included in forthcoming suite By Dave Nagel
Adobe today announced the forthcoming release of GoLive 6.0, a Web page design and site management tool for Mac OS 9 and OS X and various Windows systems. The latest release, according to Adobe, focuses on team collaboration and will ship with Adobe's Web Workgroup Server. It also adds support for wireless authoring.

The Web Workgroup Server in GoLive 6.0 is a site management tool that allows multiple users to track changes and share and manage files. It also provides version control and side by side comparison capabilities, says Adobe, "including the ability to roll back to previous versions." The Web Workgroup Server supports WebDAV-enabled applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Macromedia Dreamweaver.

The new version also offers wireless authoring capabilities, including support for XHTML, CHTML and WML. It's unclear as to the feature parity between Macintosh and Windows versions. As of press time, Adobe still had no information on its Web site. But in a press release that came out in the wee hours, the company said the Windows version will include built-in emulators for Nokia WAP and XHTML phones and NTT DoCoMo i-mode phones.

GoLive 6 itself includes a "full" QuickTime 5.0 editing environment with streaming conversion and optimization capabilities. It supports video, audio, SWF, SVG and SMIL, as well as PHP, ASP and JSP. The new version also includes the ability to deliver database-driven content.

Adobe GoLive 6.0 is expected to ship in the first quarter of 2002 for $399. It will be available in a bundle with LiveMotion 2.0 (also announced today) for $449. Adobe is also announcing the Adobe Web Collection 4.0, which includes new versions of Adobe GoLive and Adobe LiveMotion, as well as Adobe Photoshop 6.0 and Adobe Illustrator 10. The Web Collection 4.0 is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2002. For more information, visit
