While we are not planning further feature development for Fireworks, we will continue to sell Fireworks CS6 as well as make it available as part of the Creative Cloud.

As more specific details on the next version of Windows and Mac OS X are made available, we may adjust these plans.

After eight years, this is another casualty in the Adobe/Macromedia merger—joining FreeHand, Authorware, and GoLive. Not surprisingly, one could still argue that the real products that mattered to Adobe were Dreamweaver and Flash. Maybe that’s why they’re still pushing Flash so hard…
