Dreamweaver CS5 and PHP

I just read a very interesting review of Dreamweaver CS5 written by David Powers. David is someone I have known for many years and he has written many books related to PHP. He is someone who’s opinion I trust.

So his review of Dreamweaver CS5 was of particular interest to me as I am now fully embracing the WordPress platform and learning more about it every day. PHP is also becoming my second development platform (alongside ColdFusion) and any improvements to Dreamweaver for PHP development is great news to me… and apparently there’s plenty.

Unlike Fireworks CS5 which I have used and will review within the next few days, I haven’t used Dreamweaver CS5 yet so this review makes me anxious to get my hands on a copy and start integrating it in my work flow.

He also touches on other issues like HTML 5 and CSS3 support (or lack thereof) and why he thinks that, for now, Adobe made the right decision. Thanks for the great review David!

  1. Thanks for your kind words, Stéphane. I haven’t done a lot of work in Dreamweaver CS5 with WordPress yet, but I really love the improvements in both Live View and code hinting. For anyone working with PHP, CS5 is a whole new ball game.
