Flash and Snow Leopard

So, I take it by now most of you have already read John Nack’s post "Adobe Snow Leopard FAQ" as well as read the official Adobe FAQ. If not, you probably have been reading all kinds of tweets and blogs on the subject. So I won’t repeat what has already been posted. I did however want to update everyone on Flash’s status and maybe divert some flak that John has been receiving.

We have tested Flash CS4 on Snow Leopard and have currently found no issues. If this changes I will update this post.

As for Flash CS3, we did run a few tests. So, for now I can say that it installs, launches and runs fine with common steps i.e, draw rectangle, convert to movie clip, test movie, save and open file, etc. CS3 seems to run fine on Snow Leopard. This doesn’t guarantee that you won’t find any issues, there might be one; we have not run a full test pass on CS3. For the record, to do this, it would have taken our team a month at a minimum. As John mentions, we are not saying that CS3 won’t run on Snow Leopard, just that we are not planning to address any bugs that might be caused by the new OS.

I hope this helps.
