Macromedia has released an update to Fireworks, bringing it to version 4.0.2.

The update is for Fireworks 4.0 users, and is available from Macromedia's updates page.

The update improves Fireworks' Batch Processing feature, and its ability to launch and edit graphics from within the Director application. It also makes pop-up windows more predictable when viewed in Internet Explorer 4.0-4.5 for Windows.

Fireworks was developed to create bitmap and vector graphics optimized for display on the Web.

The update also improves Fireworks integration and handling of FreeHand files. A variety of other bugs have also been repaired.
