Edge family of products no longer actively developed

Adobe Edge Tools & Services were launched in 2012 as a way for Adobe to develop and experiment with a set of task-focused, lightweight apps for responsive web design, cross-browser testing, and HTML5 animation. Web designers and developers have been receptive, but have consistently asked for tighter integration with our existing tools and workflows.

To focus efforts and resources on implementing this feedback, Edge Reflow, Edge Inspect, and Edge Animate are no longer being actively developed. We continue to work on bringing their core capabilities to our industry-leading creative tools, with ongoing support for open web standards. Here are some examples of the work that is already underway:

  • Dreamweaver recently combined innovative visual aids inspired by Edge Reflow with first-class support for the Bootstrap framework, making it the premier tool for responsive web design.
  • As announced in our MAX conference in October 2015, responsive design is available in Adobe Muse for designers who don’t want to code. Edge Reflow was also a key influence in this implementation of responsive design.
  • Device Preview in Photoshop and Dreamweaver makes it easy to preview and inspect websites or mobile app designs on actual devices, a key feature in Edge Inspect.
  • Flash Professional (now Adobe Animate CC), our flagship vector animation tool, was rewritten from the ground up over the past few years to natively support HTML5 Canvas and WebGL, while continuing to support Flash formats. It can also output to any format, such as SVG, with an extensible architecture.
  • In 2016, Dreamweaver will be integrating the open source editor Brackets to provide a fully modernized coding environment.

Edge Tools & Services will continue to be available for Creative Cloud members, and we will provide security updates and bug fixes as necessary.

We are excited about supporting next generation technologies and HTML5 capabilities in our flagship tools. With the ultimate goal of helping our customers achieve their goals on the web, mobile and beyond.
