Most books are a bit outdated by the time they reach the shelves.
CC 2014.0 came out in June 2014.
The current version is CC 2014.1.1 which came out this month.
New Features in CC 2014 June 2014 Release
New Features in CC 2014.1 October 2014 Release
New Features in CC 2014.1.1 February 2015 Release
Someone please answer the original post question. Is there a way to get the new Responsive Starter Templates that came out in the October 2014 release? I've seen other people looking for these all over the web and there doesn't seem to be an answer.
I checked in my version of Dreamweaver CC and I see the starter templates as mentioned in this blog post New Dreamweaver CC Starter Templates Make Responsive Design a Snap! : Adobe Dreamweaver Team Blog
Can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing?
