Fireworks 8 is a welcome upgrade to previous releases of Fireworks. I've covered what I think are the most important features, but many more smaller features are included: increased file support for QuickTime images, superior slice options, less intrusive grids, and so on. The best advice I can give you is to go to Macromedia's Web site, download the evaluation version of Fireworks 8, and give it a spin. If you've been using Fireworks for several years, you'll be delighted with the improvements. If you're new to Fireworks, now is the time to try it out.
