Good news, all of you Dreamweaver fans out there: Version 4 of the software has hit the shelves, and it has a host of new bells and whistles for you to play with.

There are new graphics editing features, a revamped user interface design, improved code handling support, and a heap of features specifically designed to help you get the most out of your Web development experience.

By increasing the developer-friendliness of Dreamweaver in this version, Macromedia -- also the proud parent of Flash, Fireworks, and Generator -- looks to be really making it's move to become the one-stop shop for all of the development tools you need, and there's a great deal of inbreeding and cross-referencing among the Macromedia products: Dreamweaver 4 is being released along side Dreamweaver UltraDev 4 and Fireworks 4, so as we evaluate Dreamweaver 4, we'll also be taking a look at some of the cross-product integration that has been added to the lastest versions of the software applications.

Before we get started: If you've never used a WYSIWYG Web development tool before, or if you're not familiar with Dreamweaver, I'd recommend that you read through the tutorials in the help menu. The help files that come Dreamweaver 4 are always a great way to learn the in and outs of specific features, so I recommend giving them a quick read before starting out.

OK, now launch the program, grab a comfortable seat, and let's begin.
