Adobe unveils trio of CS4 betasBy Jose Vilches
Adobe Labs today released public betas for the next version of Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Soundbooth apps, which are all part of their forthcoming Creative Suite product. The betas are available to anyone, but only those with CS3 licenses can request activation codes that last until the release of CS4 instead of just two days after the first launch.
As for Adobe's professional audio creation and editing application, Soundbooth, the new beta brings multiple track support, automatic volume matching, speech to text transcription, and a new file format that supports nondestructive audio editing. There's currently no release date for CS4 - nor public trials of other key programs in the suite such as Photoshop and Illustrator - but in the meantime you can get the three available betas at the Adobe Labs website.
