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
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."

Macromedia Dreamweaver MX platform for professional
