The new Photoshop release 2014.2.2 has some bugs when I try to drag and release any element using the Move Tool. I select any layer (with the auto select layer ON) drag it around in the canvas, but when a release the mouse button, the layer continues following the mouse cursor, and everything stays freezes. It just come back when I press ESC.

Another bug: I select an object and try to move using the keyboard arrows. Sometimes it moves only in the second key pressing

Please, adjust this as soon as possible because it's almost impossible to work with this issues.

I'm using a Mac with OSX Yosemite 10.10.1

That means that Photoshop didn't receive the mouse up event for some reason. We'll have to see if we can reproduce the problem.

Are you using a Wacom tablet? A mouse? or a trackpad?

I'm using a Magic Mouse.
Restarting my Mac, the problem seems solved, but it comes back after a while...

I haven't been able to reproduce this offhand. Does it happen with a wired/standard mouse?

Are you running any system extensions? They usually show up here in System Preferences:

Not sure if this is related. In Photoshop when I click drag an object holding down '⌘' for the move tool, I am having serious issues with the layer/object randomly snapping right back to the previous position when I release. (yes, I have snap disabled). I am using a Wacom Intuos5. It does not seem to happen when I actually have the Move tool selected, only when I use the keystroke.

Photoshop: 2014.2.1
OSX: Yosemite 10.10.1
Wacom Intuos5: 6.3.10w2
Extensions: Flash Player, Java, Wacom Tablet

That is also an indication that events are getting dropped somewhere.
Have you checked with Wacom for driver updates?

Also, you should install the 2014.2.2 update.
