Adobe MAX Rombla feedback features update
This was my first MAX event and I was extremely impressed by the sense of community I saw and felt there. I have always respected Adobe as a strong technology company but didn’t realize how close they are to their customers. The openness and genuine dialog demonstrated by the Adobe team was like nothing I have seen before from a large technology company.
The response to Rombla’s introduction at MAX was extremely positive. I had a chance to demo Rombla for several members of the press and most of the Adobe product teams. Hundreds of you who saw the announcement have signed up and taken Rombla for a test drive. Many thanks for registering and for sending us feedback and suggestions. Please help to spread the work about Rombla. We are working hard on the next update that will be out in mid December. Please keep the suggestions coming.
The Rombla registration data suggests that most of the initial interest has come from Web Designers. I am excited to see what you can accomplish with Rombla. Please share some of your designs with the community. After logging in, click the Share button and then select the “Share with community” checkbox so everyone can see your creations.
The most requested feature is the ability to publish your sites to existing domains or new domains other than rombla.com. We are testing this feature now and plan to have it ready for the next update. You will be able to change the publish location for the sites you are currently building on Rombla sub-domains. Also, look for better help/tutorials, lots of bug fixes and several new features in December.
We have received several requests from Flex developers to allow the viewing and export of the site design source code(MXML and CSS) so they can be opened in Flex Builder. This was planned for post beta but we will move it up on the feature list if there is sufficient interest. If anyone else in interested in accessing site source files please let us know.
