Flash Player 10.1 preview release for Android at Google I/O

Flash Player 10.1 for Android still on track for H1 release

There seems to be some confusion around whether or not Flash Player 10.1 for Android will ship in the first half of 2010 like we promised. It’s very energizing and refreshing to see the excitement about Flash Player coming to Android! However, I do want to set the record straight.
Flash Player 10.1 for Android is [...]

New resources for Flash Catalyst and Builder beta 2

Today we released the beta 2 versions of both Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder on Adobe Labs – if you looked at either of these products at beta 1 but felt they were a bit early for regular usage then I’d encourage you try out these news builds.

With lots of bug fixes and performance improvements in both products, I’m now using these as my regular toolset for RIA design/development – Flash Catalyst in particular has added a significant number of new features over beta 1, including the ability to work with audio/video assets, as well as import and control Flash SWFs that were created in Flash Professional.

I’d like to highlight two updated developer centre articles that I’ve written and also point out a brand new one discussing workflows between Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder:

If you have any comments/feedback on the articles then please do get in touch.

Flash Builder and Flash Catalyst betas now on Labs

builder_catalyst.pngToday, we announced that the first public beta releases of Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder (previously known as Flex Builder) are available on Adobe Labs.

“Design in Mind” was one of the core themes for this release, and these tools, together with the updated Flex 4 SDK, deliver on that to make it easier than ever create high fidelity, rich Internet applications that target the Flash Platform.

We’ve published a lot of information to help you get started with these beta releases and hope that you’ll have an opportunity to give us your feedback in the forums, so that the final releases of Flash Builder and Flex 4 SDK, due later this year, are ready for prime time.
