Macromedia has launched Exchange for Dreamweaver, a Web site for the Dreamweaver developer community.

Developers can go to the site to download 100 free extensions created by developers and third-parties, or to exchange information and take part in discussions about the software.

The extensions available on the Web site extend the functionality of Dreamweaver by automating tasks, such as reformatting tables, embedding rich media content, adding Shockwave-based chat rooms to Web sites, and connecting with popular e-commerce solutions.

Developers can search for the extensions they need, receive email updates, and rate and review the extensions they find. "Macromedia approved" extensions on the site are tested by Macromedia to ensure they install correctly and behave in a manner familiar to Dreamweaver users.
