new cms and dreamweaver

I read this "Great for developers who don’t want to use the PowerCMS admin every time they need to add something for their clients." Is this what I think it is? I have just purchase last week the sculpture tool which allows me to quickly generate a site and all the pages from a template and also add CMS...but my concern was that anytime I wanted to add content to a page I had to use the CMS interface via a browser like my client would do. I would have a bit more control as an administrator but still it would not give me control of page content from dreamweaver...which is my current way of doing everything. I have been installing a tool called snippetmaster which surrounds a div tag with there class tag. The client then logins into snippetmaster website and they access the site and the pages that are tagged. The client can then using a mini editor to update content and links, upload files etc.. Actually works pretty good but not as slick as your CMS. My reluctance with the current CMS from webassist is that all I see in dreamweaver is a call to the database where the content is normally shown.
Sorry for the rambling on but do I understand right that this new version will show me the content of the page in dreamweaver and if I make changes that way the CMS will reflect the new content and still allow the client to also make changes? In other words my using dreamweaver in conjunction with the client using the web interface CMS will not break things? If this is a true statement then this is exciting...please let me know ASAP. I have a site www.phba.org that is currently using snippetmaster and it is doing fine but would love to use it as a test site for your tool if it can.
