dodge/ burn won't work in CC 2015.5

Hi there,
I've noticed that dodge/burn stopped working after upgrade to CC 2015.5
The scenario is like that:
Open a new layer
Change blending mode to "Soft light"
From there I usually dodge and burn and it works like a charm. However, after upgrading to CC 2015.5 it won't wok, the only way to dodge and burn is to duplicate the original layer.
Have someone noticed it too or the mistake is on me?

Thank you

The dodge and burn tools never worked on an empty layer in any Photoshop-version. You'll have to fill the layer with 50 % gray or use the brush-tool instead.

Olaf, you were absolutely right, my mistake.
Thank you very much!
