The Macromedia Flash (SWF) and Flash Video (FLV) File Format Specification (Version 8) went live on the licensing center today! I know a lot of people have been waiting for it, and we appreciate your patience.
For version 8, we have added FLV to the spec. We also made a change to the PDF to put the license acceptance into the document, and the document does require you view it with Adobe Acrobat or Reader version 6 or above. It’s new, it’s a change, and I’m open to feedback. One known issue – the licensing form will ask you to check “I accept” to proceed and then you will get the same license in the PDF. With our current system, it was hard to change this step without missing this release window and I didn’t want to hold it up for a relatively minor issue. Sorry for the redundancy.
