Just to make sure that I have you covered for this release, go through my notes before you complete installing Dreamweaver CC.

There have been many changes to menu options and the user interface in this release. Do not get worked up if you don't see your options in their usual places. The document http://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/the-new-modernized-dreamweave r-cc.html contains a list of all changes to DW CC.
I have created these notes over discussions I have had in the past few days. If you find anything that is incorrect or misleading, please bring it to my notice.

I will be hearing you through the next few days, and will be reporting from the various social platforms. While I am sure that most of you will sail smoothly, I will try to guide the rest over any rough waters.
I have been a Dreamweaver user since the very early days under Macromedia. Today I will be leaving Dreamweaver forever. You've seriously removed all database interaction and removed database, bindings and server behaviors panels? Does anyone who develops Dreamweaver actually develop web sites? If I wanted to handcode all my data functionality, I'd use a text editor. In fact, that's what I'll be doing from now on. The main advantage Dreamweaver had over it's competitors has just been abandoned.
This functionality should absolutely have been in place on day one - saying that a third part extension may be on the way is not enough. This is many people's first tool of work - if the core functionality is no longer provided and maintained by Adobe, then I can no longer trust it. I'm sure that many thousands of others agree with me.
Yes thanks Preran - it was a life saver after a day which cost me £600 in lost revenue. Such a shame that your tech support team aren't aware of this. It took the young lady I spoke to twenty minutes to discover the functionality had even been removed, let alone a way to restore it.
It's my own fault, I should not have trusted Adobe and updated during the working week, I now know that Adobe can no longer be trusted to have fully documented and checked their software and will think twice before automatically updating from now on.
When are these data tools going to get the attention they deserve rather than Dreamweaver becoming nothing but a CSS design tool? You guys focussed on the wrong area for your target audience. Many of us are very disappointed.
I TAKE IT BACK
The panels are there, but the insert/update/delete record wizards are still nowhere to be seen.
Back to square one.

Where is ASP and ASP.Net support. After installing the Server Bindings, still not available. Not everyone codes in PHP.
Please have a look @:
* Vista/Windows 7: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CC\Configuration\DisabledFeatures
* Mac OS X: /Applications/Adobe Dreamweaver CC/Configuration/DisabledFeatures
I applied the Deprecated_ServerBehaviorsPanel_Support.zxp for CC, but in the same folder ASP_JS_Support.mxp. The .mxp extension is for older versions of DW. How is this going to effect CC? I installs to Extension Manager CS6 no CC where it is required. Extension Manager CC cannot read .mxp.
How is this going to effect CC?
Good Catch There.
DW CC doesnt supports MXP.
Here is the link to summary of steps required to convert mpx to ZXP.
Please folow the link from "Converting MXP to ZXP format" heading.
Also please feel free to log a bug for this @ https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform&product=1 2
In the time that the others get to you, can you quickly go through this doc and see if you covered everything?
Thanks, I answer You - http://forums.adobe.com/message/5434454#5434454
and can repeat - this is not a answer, not answer what Users wait :-)
This is time for look arround for Adobe alternative.
We have cheap but great altenative for Photoshop, Ilustrator, now time for Dreamweaver
On business courses very popular stories about product killer - they always start from cheap, not full desision and always kill "leaders" who's not thinking about Users. May be now time for Adobe management - re-study some busines theory? Now Your leader ... Yes, but for how many Years?
I have several subscription products, all of them - or much. much cheaper, or have Exit strategy, when I stop subscription.
It's look very good - "Just" 60-70 EUR for ALL product, but I don.t need Premier or other ...
P.S. Sorry, I can't stop! :-)
I just at Feb-March pay more than 2500EUR for Adobe product and You change rules of the Game! I don't have civil words! :-)
The money - is not biggest problem, the problem is - after 2-3 Year all customer will be slave of adobe
If adobe decide - remove for example MySQL support, You don't have a choice ... You can't stop pay and You can't upgrade to new version ... Like You all You live continue pay for Dreamweaver CS2 ... Excelent feauture.
It's real time for start alternative prodjects.
