“CSXS Infrastructure CS6″ update for Dreamweaver CS6

If you have not already checked up your Adobe Updater blinking in System Tray(Win) or Dock (Mac) for any Dreamweaver updates, do so right away. If you work with Business Catalyst sites, do it instantly!

Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 installed on your machine will receive this new update and address the performance issues reported by users of BC. When you click on the “Get Started” button in Business Catalyst panel within Dreamweaver, you might be seeing a progress bar for a very long time.

While the progress bar shows up, it may not let you work with the complete application. This has been fixed with the progress bar going away much much faster than earlier.

Files Panel and icons

There were few customer reports (http://forums.adobe.com/message/4392653) of icons going missing in files panel after the release of OSX Lion version 10.7.3. It was something which we investigated and worked with Apple to identify the issue and resolve it.

The update of 10.7.4 went live a few weeks ago and it was expected to fix the issue. The engineers have verified it internally and confirmed the fix. In the community also, there are no longer reports of the issue being raised anymore.

It is a good indication that Mac platform users, update to the latest available from Apple. So if you are running into such an issue, you should go ahead and launch Software Update installing the latest ones available in the list.
