With the release of Flash Player 10, some people are saying the end of era – Flash Player 9.

What do you think ? Let me know about your comments.

Anyway, I really like Flash Player 9Start of AVM2era.

Good bye Flash Player 9 ๐Ÿ™‚

Really Flash Player 10 has many more new features like for 3D, New Support for Text, Improved Fillers and Effects etc.

Some newly added packages and Classes in Flash Player 10 are as below.

  • flash.geom.MAtrix3D
  • flash.geom.Orientation3D

This will really improve the development ofย  AIR applications with Flex and Actionscrpt 3.

Above all these, One thing Adobe missed out is improvement over Zooming. ( Yes, there must some improved support for Zooming like ” Deep Zoom – of – Silverlight )

Google Maps API for Actionscript 3, Flex and Flash

Great…

Actionscrpt 3 got another feather. Google announced ‘Google MAP API in Actionscript 3 ‘ through which integration of Google MAPs in Flex and Flash, easily possible, now.

I welcomes Google in actionscript arena…

(Note : I would comment as, due to strategic pressure after Yahoo Map API, ESRI Map API etc. for Actionscript 3, goole has come up with… )

What so ever it may be… benefits will goes to RIA developers and lacs of net users.

I would like to say… last but not the least…

Happy Flexing… ๐Ÿ™‚

flare – add Fusion to Flex

flare is : ActionScript 3 libraries for interactive visualizations on the web.

As a researcher mentality, especially for flex, I come to know about the ‘ Flare – tool kit’ to add some visualization effect to Flex applications .

Flare is a collection of ActionScript 3 classes for building a wide variety of interactive visualizations. ‘ flare ‘ can be used to build basic charts, complex animations, network diagrams, treemaps, and more.

Flare is written in the ActionScript 3 programming language and can be used to build visualizations that run on the web in the Adobe Flash Player. Flare is open source software. The power behind Flare is prefuse, a full-featured visualization toolkit written in Java.

Though, initially its demo is not so impressive at first look but if you spend some time and play with it, certainly you will come to know its abilities .

Check its demo : http://flare.prefuse.org/demo/
Cheers. ๐Ÿ™‚
