Release Notes | Dreamweaver CC releases in 2018 and 2017

The Dreamweaver release notes describes the recent updates.

August 2019 release (18.2.1 )

This update contains security fix associated with traversing protocol relative paths in a document.

When a document is opened from local site path and is not loading from the Testing Server, protocol relative URLs (starting with //) and file protocol URLs (starting with file:// or file:///), where the resources are not on local machine, are now resolved through http.

If the assets are not available on http, then Dreamweaver tries to load the related files from https. If the assets are not available over https also, then Dreamweaver fails to load the related file or assets.

May 2018 release (18.2)

The May 2018 release in Dreamweaver enables enterprise customers to have seamless connection to servers using SFTP.

For a list of known issues in this release, refer to Known issues in Dreamweaver


In some instances, you may face issues with SFTP server connection if you use .ppk file as private key file. Ensure that you are using .pem file as private key file. Dreamweaver supports .pem files.
