Dreamweaver update for Creative Cloud Members

At Adobe, we are committed to making continuous improvements to our products to enable users to remain at the cutting edge of today’s technology. Adobe Creative Cloud has given us the opportunity to provide our customers with enhancements in the quickest way possible, allowing web producers to stay current. With today’s Dreamweaver update, exclusively for Creative Cloud members and Dreamweaver subscription customers, our goal is to empower users to create beautiful and interactive HTML-based websites and content more seamlessly.

We are excited to share some of the most exciting features available in the latest version of Dreamweaver, which include enhanced HTML5 support for Forms and Semantic tags, integration with Edge Animate, and the ability to easily insert HTML audio and video into projects. More details on each of these improvements is included below.

This Dreamweaver update offers expanded support for HTML5 with improved Forms, additional Semantic element support and new HTML5 Audio/Video controls in the Insert Panel. In addition, an overhauled Insert Panel provides a more meaningful and organized workflow, with some dialogs such as Tag Editor and TagChooser having been removed – without taking away the functionality.

We also invested heavily in developing a streamlined workflow with Edge Animate. Designers will now be able to import their HTML5-based compositions directly from Edge Animate into Dreamweaver, thereby creating a clear path between the two applications.

Finally,  enhancements to the Properties Inspector make adding HTML5 video and audio easier than ever. A more streamlined User Interface, containing fewer dialogs for new workflows and functionality, offers non-intrusive editing experiences.

We want to thank all our customers – in particular those who reported issues and helped us resolve them.

Note: Before upgrading, please follow some guidance in the release notes for backing up existing customizations and re-applying them
