Dreamweaver CC adds Live Highlight, enhanced CSS Designer, more

Adobe on Tuesday announced an update to Dreamweaver CC, the version of their web development software available to subscribers of Adobe's Creative Cloud service.

New features include a new Modernized Live View that uses a new rendering engine that displays web content using the same engine as Google Chrome - Adobe says it's faster than before, with better HTML5 rendering. Also new is a Live Highlight feature that helps you inspect and highlight HTML elements and applied CSS selectors. Improvements to CSS Designer include a new color picker and "usability enhancements." Code View has been improved with line number highlighting and other changes. And Adobe has made the customary bug fixes you'd expect in an incremental update, as well.

The new update is available for immediate download.
