Adobe is to halt development of FreeHand and GoLive, a French report claims.

The news was allegedly revealed by Adobe France's Robert Raiola at Adobe Live, according to a report in French-language newspaper, MacGeneration.

Macworld has so far been unable to achieve confirmation or denial of this report from Adobe's local corporate PR representative.

The report also reveals that while Adobe will continue to support both products, development efforts have been focused on Illustrator and Dreamweaver. The latter product will be given a user interface update to make it match other Adobe creative products.

Adobe acquired Macromedia in December 2005.
