Adobe CS4 beta Download & Reviews

Adobe has just announced that the newest versions of several Creative Suite titles, namely, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Soundbooth, can now be downloaded for a test run.

Adobe Dreamweaver

Adobe Dreamweaver

New features help teams and individual developers alike reach the next level in performance and functionality.

Adobe Fireworks

Adobe Fireworks

Create, edit, and optimize web graphics more accurately and faster than ever with the enhanced toolset.


Adobe Soundbooth

Adobe Soundbooth

New tools for video editors, designers, and others who need to accomplish their everyday audio work.


There’s a catch. If you’re not currently using the CS3 versions of Dreamweaver and Fireworks, the trial period for these programs will end within 48 hours. Otherwise you can request serial numbers to use them during Adobe’s prerelease period.

As for Soundbooth, the same rules apply except that you can use the serial number of any CS3 product. That is, “including but limited to Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, etc.”

If you’re curious about what these CS4 versions have in store but don’t or can’t try them for yourself, CNET has a brief rundown of new features. For example, Fireworks “finally resembles those of other applications in the Creative Suite” and “features compatibility with Adobe’s AIR, Flash, and Flex Builder as well as HTML”.

Here are more in-depth reviews of the three programs:
