Feature differences between Adobe CS3 and CS4 DW?
Our ICT teacher recently went on a dreamweaver course and came back saying that we need to get CS3 instead, as CS4 for dreamweaver/flash is missing critical features! I have been unable to get any concrete information on what these features are, or even if they are just hidden somewhere else, however the tutor on this course seemed to be the one who made this claim.
I want to know if anyone else has heard this, or even someone who may have upgraded to CS4 (or used both) who can say if there is any major change in there which would make using it difficult? Is there a list of features removed/amended somewhere so we can see exactly what has changed? I don't quite fancy running CS3 alongside CS4 (if we are even able to get hold of CS3).

I can't say I have heard that before, but I haven't seen or used CS4. It would help if the ICT teacher made a note of these specific features missing and you could drop an e-mail to Adobe to find out for sure.

Missing critical features...?
No, never heard that - use CS4 myself, and haven't notcied anything. But its not often I use dreamweaver

Tried that, she doesn't know! Like I said, the tutor on this course made this note and she has passed it on to me. Apparantly, the interface means it is more aimed towards professionals and that the kids will find it harder to use (and there are fewer, if any templates available in dreamweaver).

Most notable change in CS4 that I have found so far is the site map feature and the set home page feature is missing. That is so far. Let you know if I find more.

Here's some more info for you.
The following features are no longer in Dreamweaver CS4:
• Web services
• Layout mode
• Site Map view
• Java Bean support
• Flash elements (Image Viewer)
• Flash text and Flash buttons
• ASP.NET and JSP server behaviors and recordsets
