Fireworks is dead software. It was officially discontinued in May 2013, and no support or bug fixes are forthcoming.
Alternatives for Windows are:
- Xara Designer Pro (which includes Web Designer)
- Photoshop & Illustrator (with round-tripping), Muse
- Photoline & Inkscape (with round-tripping option)
- CorelDraw Suite
On Mac better alternatives exist, such as Sketch. It depends on the work you do now in Fireworks.
Hey Jeff, the short answer to your question is NO! As the previous responder stated it is DEAD. You can still download it and still use it but no more updates or new features. Why. Haha, don't ask. Adobe is being Adobe and essentially saying, "sure, we know tens of thousands of users have been addicted to this program for years and years... but hey, too bad... it's great being the big dog on the block." "Don't like it, well, we really don't care - it doesn't fit in our 'current' business strategy... use another product - (wink, wink)"
Also, there really is nothing that will "replace" Fireworks or is anything like it. Sketch, which I use a lot, isn't really even in the same ballpark. Best you can do is what Adobe wants you to do and subscribe to the entire CC collection and use multiple tools.
Good luck and have a good day.
