I just can't wait to show you some of these top new features. I'll show you the new user interface improvements that are designed to speed up your workflow. We'll look at the numerous typographic enhancements. Again, designed to make you work smarter, and not harder. I'll cover enhanced new tools like the Compound Shape tool that makes it easy to to create complex vector artwork. We'll sharpen those vector edges with the Snap to Pixel commands and produce higher quality gradient fills by using the Gradient Dither tool.

Thanks to FXG 2.0 support, your artwork and designs can be ported over to applications like Flash Catalyst with a high degree of fidelity.
I think you'll be really pleased with this new release. So let's get started exploring Fireworks CS5 New Features.
