Flex & AIR 聚焦未来
At the Flashforward conference Kevin Lynch, Adobe's chief software architect, shed light on the ongoing development events around some of the company's core technologies, including Flash, Flex and the Adobe Integrated Runtime for developers and designers.
"We're really focused on video technology and helping you create experiences," Lynch said. Adobe intents on helping developers and designers plan, acquire, produce, manage, publish, deliver and play back video content.
Incredible progress" has been made with AIR, said Lynch. The second beta of AIR will also support access to local file system archives, user notification, applications updates, drag-and-drop capability and local storage, among other features. Yet, Adobe`s efforts are concentrated mainly on enabling AIR apps to run well on the desktop, taking advantage of Flash, as well as HTML and PDF. A beta of the AIR technology will be available in a couple of weeks.
Hitting on Adobe's most famous technology, Lynch went on with the upgrade to the current version of the product, Flash Player 9, known as "Moviestar" which highly enhances the video capabilities of the player. Moviestar includes new features, improvements and bug fixes for Windows, Macintosh and Linux versions of Flash Player 9, including:
