Support for HiDPI resolution in Dreamweaver (Windows)

New in the October 2017 release

Dreamweaver CC now supports HiDPI displays for Windows. With the introduction of high resolution, Dreamweaver offers improved user experience while using modern monitors. Images, icons, fonts, and menus appear crisper, without any pixelation. Further, you don't experience issues like overflow of UI elements.

Support for multi-monitors in Dreamweaver (Windows)

New in the October 2017 release

Dreamweaver CC now offers multi-monitor support for Windows. As a Dreamweaver user, you can now work with multiple monitors at the same time. The application automatically scales according to the size and resolution of the monitor that you use.

Multi-monitor support offers several benefits. For example, it is now possible to untab a document window and drag it to another monitor, or view a live preview in one monitor while editing the code in another monitor.

Enhancements to Git support

Enhanced in the October 2017 release

Git support was introduced in the June 2017 release. In continuation of the Git integration in Dreamweaver, the latest version of Dreamweaver supports the following enhancements:

Test remote connection

The Add New Remote dialog box now has a Test button. Click this button to test the connection for your remote Git repository. When you click Test, the system tests whether the URL for your remote repository is valid.

The Site Setup dialog box also has a Test button to test the remote connection.

Note that the Test button does not validate the credentials that you enter while adding or connecting to a remote repository.
