I am excited about the prospect of the server behaviors incorporating MySQLi connections. I think the development of Dreamweaver in the past has been generally great, despite the company swing towards more graphic oriented apps.
It's August 2020 when i am typing this, is the plan still to have this up on Dreamweaver in 2020?

Maybe include support for Markdown like you had in Brackets. This would make it an easier choice for editing files for static site generators as well as for flat CMS sites that use them.
I just downloaded the trial version and server behaviors are still not there. When will they be included?
Please put back the basic Coldfusion functionality -- default file type, color coding, and tag completion. I prefer using DW for my development because the SFTP process of working on remote files fits perfectly within my needs for maintaining my CF site. The removal of CF support is forcing me out of the ecosystem which had met my needs perfectly for over 10 year.
Please WE need the serveur behavior working for modern code
Agree with all people here. I developed more than 150 websites just with the Adobe Dreamweaver Toolbox in the past. Please update it and add it to Dreamweaver. Btw, classic server behavior update would be REALLY appreciated as almost no hosting service platform still allow php versions less than 7.
Thanks a lot !
Agree with Bernard, Adobe dropped the ball when it dropped the toolbox in 2009. Include the Toolbox or similar capabilities ASAP to get customers back.
What is going on with Dreamweaver design? The more i use it the more stressed i become because it is un-unsable!
I spend half my working life waiting for updates to come and then going back to hand code because the program does not work!
One rule i am adopting with Adobe when they buy a company is that is not to use their services as it is awful!
I would strongly recommend you look at the Dreamweaver developer toolbox, and implement that into Dreamweaver, I will even supply you a copy if you need it. You will have a very well built platform that will be able to accomplish almost anything, and you will see a HUGE return of Dreamweaver users.
