InterAKT Online develops a PowerPack for the next major release of ColdFusion MX - codenamed Blackstone.
Bucharest, ROMANIA - June 11, 2004 - InterAKT Online, the leader of the Dreamweaver Extensions market, announced today that it signed a contract with Macromedia, Inc. (Nasdaq: MACR) for developing a collection of enhancements and extensions for Macromedia Dreamweaver that would be installed on top of Dreamweaver MX 2004 and deliver improved ColdFusion features.
Through the initial planning phases for the ColdFusion Blackstone release, a number of IDE related items have been identified as critical to the success of a new ColdFusion user. Through consultations between the ColdFusion and the Dreamweaver team a couple of items have been identified that could be delivered via configuration settings and through the Dreamweaver extensibility API - without needing to modify the core Dreamweaver product codebase.
InterAKT Online has been chosen as a partner for developing this suite.
"There are a couple of features that will just make life easier for everyone" says Tim Buntel, Product Manager for Macromedia ColdFusion Server referring to this project. "Hopefully, our Blackstone DW extensions will make many issues a problem of the past. One for example will allow the DW recordset wizard to create databound CFCs that look and feel to the DW user just like any other recordset. And any other DW function that uses recordsets (server behaviors and so forth) will work, too. Beautiful!" adds Mr. Buntel.
In addition to this Alexandru Costin, Chief Executive Officer of the MX Division within InterAKT mentions that "We are very pleased to work closely with Macromedia in order to improve Dreamweaver MX 2004. Weve worked hard to be recognized as the most innovative company in terms of extensions development, and this tight relationship is the long-awaited award. ColdFusion and Dreamweaver programmers will be able to enjoy now a suite of features that will surely ease their work."
