On the "what's new in Illustrator" there are some new features, but on my MacBook Pro the features 1 and 2 do not work. Could some one check them for me - do you have them working? Is there any way to enable these features?

In Illustrator CC, there are enhancements to guides:

  1. Double-clicking on a ruler (Ctrl/Cmd + R) creates a guide at that specific location on the ruler. When you hold Shift and then double-click a specific location on a ruler, the guide created at the point automatically snaps to the closest division (mark) on the ruler.
  2. Create horizontal and vertical Guides in one action. Here’s how: At the top-left corner of the Illustrator window, left-click the intersection of the Rulers, press Ctrl (or Cmd on a Mac), and drag the mouse pointer to any location in the Illustrator window. The mouse pointer becomes cross hairs to indicate where a horizontal and vertical guide can be created. Release the mouse pointer to create the Guides.

If you are using Illustrator CS6, then the features you mentioned won't work. The quote says Illustrator CC (Creative Cloud), but your title says CS6.
