Top New Features of Adobe Dreamweaver CS5



Adobe Dreamweaver CS5

Integrated CMS support —Enjoy authoring and testing support for content management system frameworks like WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal. Dynamically Related Files provides direct access to a page’s related files, even for dynamic pages, and Live View Navigation offers accurate previews of dynamic applications.

CSS inspection —Visually display the CSS box model in detail without reading code or requiring separate utilities. Hover your cursor over block-level elements in Live View to see their cascade and context instead of using the Tag Selector.

Adobe BrowserLab integration —Preview dynamic web pages and local content with multiple viewing, diagnostic, and comparison tools. BrowserLab is a new CS Live online service* that quickly and accurately tests web content across web browsers and operating systems.

Toggle CSS properties —Quickly and easily disable and re-enable CSS properties directly from the CSS Styles panel. Reduce the need to manually edit CSS code, be it inline, in the document head, or in an external style sheet.

Enhanced Subversion support —Manage site files more effectively in collaborative, version-controlled environments with enhanced support for Subversion. Move, copy, and delete files locally as you would a normal, static website, then synchronize changes with your remote SVN repository.

PHP custom class code hinting —Display proper syntax for custom PHP functions to help you write code more accurately. Rapidly build and maintain applications, and get direct insight into core PHP functions, methods, and objects with dynamic PHP code hinting.

Site-specific code hinting —Benefit from code hinting on non-standard files and directories in Dreamweaver CS5, enabling enhanced hinting support for third-party PHP libraries and CMS frameworks such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.

Enhanced CSS starter pages —Jumpstart your standards-based website design with updated and simplified CSS Starter Layouts. With a wider selection to choose from, the new templates incorporate evolving CSS best practices and easy-to-understand selectors and rules.

Simple site set-up —Set up a site faster than ever with the completely retooled Dreamweaver Site Definition dialog box. Add multiple servers with custom names to utilize staged, networked or other site types.

Widget Browser —Drag and drop customizable web widgets from a variety of JavaScript frameworks onto your page. This new Adobe AIR® application helps you find, configure, and preview the right widget for the job.
