Flash 10 on it’s way

Adobe announced today that Flash 10 is on it’s way and a first beta is available of their site.

The new version of the more than 10 year old animation and rich media plugin will create new possibilities for both designers and coders.

From a first glance this morning the things that impresses me is the advanced text edit tool that among other things allows you to work better with asian characters plus support for typographic elements like ligatures.
  The other thing that seems great (although I really haven’t seen it in action yet) is that the creative features now available in Adobe Flash Player 10 beta won’t slow down performance,

Grant Skinner, CEO and chief architect of gskinner.com says: “With Flash Player 10 beta, developers can enable SWF content to render through the memory bandwidth and computational horsepower of the GPU hardware processor, freeing up the CPU to do more – such as render 3D content and intricate effects, and process complex business logic. No other browser runtime has these capabilities.”

Still missing
What I personally lack is that Adobe has yet not solved how to minimized the font weight if you’re using asian characters and the fact that they haven’t created a better way to link dynamic text directly into databases during the building process. This is one area where Microsoft Silverlight has already gained good terrain.

ReadWriteWeb made me spend an early morning looking into Flash 10.

  • Ive worked at Foreign, saw you sacked your CEO, You really need to figure out how to deal with your employees. You need to have a guy working with that full-time, about the enviroment about the people You employ! And making your place an office you want to stay with…. Dont you see thats what its all about Johan? You need to see this. It has nothing to do with the clients you have. Your company, as a team, A team. Make it happen! How do you do that! I recommend a teambuilding or an UGL of anysort at your company… If you ever want to make Foreign bigger than what it is you need to make it a place where people enjoy doing creative stuff at with a lot of emotions built into it. I know from myselfside that a lot of designers or CD has an emotional side that needs to get stimulated. Just giving you a tip here.

  • Hey,

    Thanks for your tip. And if you’ve worked at our place I think you know that there was a similar reason for hiring a CEO at the first place…and now we will start that process over but you can rest assured that making people enjoy the place has always been our objective.

    However, my personal blog is not an area for discussing this and especially in the comment are on a post about Flash 10.

    Feel free to send me an email and we’ll met up and talk – that would be much appreciated.
