With a Creative Cloud subscription, I use Dreamweaver CS6 — v12.1 b5966.
Is this the same version and build number used by owners of Dreamweaver CS6??
There are, and always will be, two versions (and build numbers) of Dreamweaver: perpetual and cloud.
Cloud members will always have early access to new and improved features compared to perpetual. That's an Adobe promise to Cloud members. Perpetual will gain these Cloud-only features in the next paid-for upgrade version of DW (CS7).
Dreamweaver CS6 cloud members currently have access to 12.1.1.
Dreamweaver CS6 perpetual license owners currently have 12.0.3.
John, isn't is 6.5 then 7? I thought Adobe said .5 release every year and CS every other year. So they still get the updates, but only once a year if they continue to upgrade.
@SnakEyez: maybe (I only mentioned CS7 in passing) but David Powers commented in a forum post last year that his latest mail was that Adobe might be quietly dropping the idea of .5 releases due to end user confusion.
Be really hard to follow updates if 6.1 and 6.2 are free updates but 6.5 is a paid-for upgrade then 6.5.5 and 6.6 are free - but only for 6.5.x customers - and so on.
But then end users understanding of Adobe's version numbering is not exactly clear cut now - even without .5 numbering thrown into the mix - given the existence of this very thread,
And then try finding Release Notes for each point release for every product......and then Adobe makes major menu changes in Cloud only DW mid-cycle dot releases.....
I've always felt that Adobe was digging a confusing version numbering hole (which feature is in which version?) since the Cloud was announced. It's a bit of a mess all round in my view. Someone needs to hit the reset button and start afresh.
So here's a good question. I have both a perpetual license and a cloud subscription. I just checked for updates on the machine that had the cloud version using the Help>Updates feature, was directed to an update, but now my Subscription machine has the same build as my Perpetual license machine and all of the cloud features have gone away. Both machines are running 12.0.3 build 5861
Any ideas about how to fix this???
