Macromedia Studio 8 was the last software suite released by Macromedia, before it was acquired by Adobe Systems in December 2005.
The software package superseded Macromedia Studio MX 2004 in August 2005 and was replaced by Adobe Creative Suite 3 Web Standard and Web Premium in March 2007.
Applications from Studio 8 were also packaged with Adobe Creative Suite 2 in special bundles.
End of supportEdit
Adobe discontinued active support for Macromedia Studio 8 in 2008.
On December 15, 2012, the activation server for legacy Macromedia products was shut down. Adobe provided a procedure to activate older applications from Macromedia Studio MX 2004, along with Contribute 3 and FlashPaper 2, but not the rest of the Studio 8 applications.
