New Flash Player penetration numbers are out. You can view them here.
It’s quite clear that comparing to the 6, no many developers considered the 7 as a so useful version apart AS2, in fact I still find cool coding in AS2 and exporting with the 6. It’s also funny to see how sometimes the percentage decreses .Thanks anyway to link them, hoping that now we will be more able to convince clients to use the latest version.
How will v7 Global notification settings effect the pickup of Flash v8.http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager05.htmlThe next question would be, “What percentage of v7 users have ‘Notify me..’ option checked”My guess is that v8 will have a much faster install rate than v7. I’d give it 6 mo. to reach 70% w/ broadband and auto updates.
Being able to compile back to 6 and still use AS2 hurt adoption rates…why force people to upgrade? 7 meant nothing to my audience. (Then again, I deal with intranet deployments.)From what I’ve seen, 8 is going to justify it, and make my projects a little easier too.If you could work on getting it bundled into Mozilla/NS8 & IE7, that would be swell.
