All of the extension suppliers have updated their extensions to ZXP format. Just go to their web sites and you will find them.
If you want to convert the extensions yourself, use the CS6 extension manager as per
En Passant, I only read a couple of words of your rant, not interested, especially when I consider that this question has been answered on numerous other occasions. Seek and ye shall find.
Ben, I appreciate your honesty and help.
For the sake of clarity, I would like to mention that during my seeking and finding I've yet to find the specifics on why the file formates were changed, other than the ZXP format has the capability of including more features.
Also, while the major extension providers have upgraded their products to ZXP versions, some of them are paid upgrades and part of bundles, so it can get a little pricey. The extensions will convert successfully, but get the database error during install in EM CC. Even with that, they still show up in DW CC and function properly, except perhaps for one or two of the features. Hopefully, when I do purchase the compatbile extension, I"ll be able to install it, as the one I installed doesn't display in the EM and therefore doesn't provide a way to uninstall!
On the other side of the coin, I've converted some extensions, and installed them without a hitch, they show up in DW but just don't work at all.
My understanding of Adobe dropping support for mxp is that this is just one of the steps in their move into an AppStore model. In future plug-ins for Dreamweaver, Photoshop, etc. are supposed to be downloaded from their new built-in exchange panel. They will also have their fair share from each purchase.
"Out of the price paid by the customer, Adobe and FastSpring keep 28.7% + $0.49 transaction fee"
There is also an anual subscription fee for commercial developers.
