Dreamweaver gets one of the biggest updates today with the addition of many features that have long been requested by users including PhoneGap Build support for building and packaging native apps for iOS and Android. Some of the other new features that Adobe is showing off at MAX include the new CSS designer, an enhanced Fluid Grid Layout, Sync settings to access files, settings, and preferences from anywhere, support for author projects using HTML, CSS, and Javascript, and brand new interface that Adobe notes has removed outdated features for a “lighter and faster application.”
