We are happy to announce the release of Adobe Bridge Beta (


We have been tracking the issues reported on the latest release version of Bridge and have been working on fixing those issues.  


With this Beta release, we're fixing many top customer-reported issues in the area of APD, File Operations, Label/Rating, Workflow Builder, Workspaces, Panels, Collections, and a few more. Also, please note that we have made a few significant changes in the preview rendering workflows.


Also, we are hearing your requests about reintroducing Multiple Bridge windows. This Beta release does not include this requested feature, but the Bridge team is working on it, analyzing the use cases, and constructing an appropriate action plan. Please stay tuned.


Please let us know if any fixes are not working well for you.
