Flash Pro CC is released and you must have noticed the big boost up to the performance. With a completely new 64-bit modularized architecture, native cocoa: modularized, Flash Pro CC is faster and more reliable. With this, we could achieve faster start time, file opening and saving, timeline scrubbing, and more.
The UI of Flash Pro CC has been completely redesigned to provide a crisp, focused, and fresh experience. Some of the key changes are:
Dark UI Theme
The dark UI theme allows you to focus completely on the stage and your content when working with Flash Pro. Although you can switch over to a lighter theme, Flash Pro CC is available to you with the Dark UI enabled.
(A) The Keyboard Shortcuts panel is now equipped with a Search facility that allows you to drill-down to the right Command, easily.

At Google I/O, 2013, Adobe announced The Toolkit for Dart, a new extension to Flash Professional CC. You can now create rich, interactive, and animated content, and publish to the Dart language. Dart is Google’s own open-source Web Programming Language that supports many drawing capabilities and core animation delivered by Flash Professional. It includes support for images and vectors, movie clips and graphics animations, buttons, text, audio, and the filters and blend modes supported by the HTML5 canvas.
Ok, now, here’s something that’s awesome: Adobe intends to contribute the extension to the Dart community by open-sourcing the project. For more information on the extension, see this announcement.
