New & Enhanced Features :
> Adobe AIR authoring (new)
Create your Adobe® AIR™ prototype directly within Adobe Fireworks®, ready to be deployed to HTML and CSS, Adobe Flex®, or SWF. Easily convert your click-through mock-up.
> PDF export (new)
Generate high-fidelity, protected PDF documents from your Fireworks comps for client communication. Help safeguard your designs with password protection — separate passwords can be created for viewing and other tasks such as printing, copying, and commenting.
> CSS export (new)
Design complete web pages in a robust graphic environment and then export standards-compliant, CSS-based layouts, complete with external style sheets, in one step. Integrate foreground and background graphics with new slice types.
> Customizable and reusable assets (enhanced)
Jump-start your design process with the Common Library, a repository of graphic symbols, form elements, text symbols, and animations frequently used in web and software applications, interfaces, and websites. Expand your collection with your own custom symbols and styles for continued rapid design.
> Styles panel upgrades (enhanced)
Work more efficiently with the enhanced Styles panel. With the click of an icon, choose between default Fireworks styles, current document styles, or styles from other libraries. Multiple style sets can easily be accessed.

Work faster and smarter with overall performance enhancements, from file opening and saving to symbol updates and intensive bitmap and vector operations.

Produce exceptional type designs with the enhanced typesetting capabilities of the Adobe text engine. Import or copy/paste double-byte characters from Illustrator (CS3 or CS4) and Photoshop (CS3 or CS4) without loss of fidelity. Float text inside a path for high-impact logos.

Quickly place Smart Guides on your canvas for swift, accurate positioning and measurement of guides and elements. Edit symbols in place for precise symbol refinement in context with the rest of your design.
