Macromedia Fireworks 8 box.jpg

Macromedia Fireworks 8 is the last version of Fireworks to be released under the Macromedia name. It was also packaged with Macromedia Studio 8 and Adobe Web Bundle.[1]

Product history[edit | edit source]

After Adobe Systems' acquisition of Macromedia in December 2005,[2] it was succeeded by Adobe Fireworks CS3, which replaced Adobe ImageReady in Adobe Creative Suite 3.

End of support[edit | edit source]

Adobe discontinued active support for Macromedia Studio 8 in 2008.[3] On December 15, 2012, the activation server for legacy Macromedia products was shut down.[4] Adobe provided a procedure to activate older applications from Macromedia Studio MX 2004, but not Studio 8.[5]
