Adobe announced yesterday at Adobe MAX the advancements to the Adobe Flash Platform, a complete system of integrated tools, frameworks, clients and servers to develop Web apps, content and video that runs across various OS and devices.
Some of the highlights of this announce are the preview of Flash Catalyst( formely code named Thermo in Adobe Labs), a professional interaction design tool for rapidly creating application interfaces and interactive content without coding. Flash Catalyst enables artwork created in Adobe Creative Suite 4 to be imported with full fidelity and quickly converted into dynamic components such as buttons, scrollbars, input fields and more. Finished projects can be published directly to Flash Player or AIR. When combined with the next version of Flex Builder, Adobe Flash Catalyst enables design and development to be done in parallel. This workflow supports iterative development and delivers higher quality results with faster time to market. A preview release of Adobe Flash Catalyst will be available for MAX 2008 attendees. A public beta version is expected to be available on Adobe Labs in early 2009. For more information, please visit www.adobe.com/go/flashcatalyst.
The Flex Builder “Gumbo” preview release, also available yesterday for MAX 2008 attendees, expands the use of Flex to a wider audience of developers, offering new data-centric development capabilities to create rich Internet applications. Gumbo also enhances project productivity through the improved design and development workflow with Adobe Flash Catalyst and improvements to core development capabilities such as the debugger, profiler and code editor. For more information, please visit http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flex/. A new preview release of the open source Flex framework is also available on www.opensource.adobe.com.
Adobe AIR 1.5 is available immediately as a free download for Windows and Mac, and AIR 1.5 for Linux is expected to be available before the end of the year. For more information on Adobe AIR, please visit www.adobe.com/products/air/.
Furthering Adobe’s commitment to the Linux community and as part of ensuring the cross-platform compatibility of Flash Player, a pre-release 64-bit Linux version of Adobe Flash Player 10 is now available on Adobe Labs at www.adobe.com/go/linux64player.This offers easier, native installation on 64-bit Linux systems and removes the need for 32-bit emulation.
