Interesting Flash Player and AIR roadmap plans

Although not officially confirmed by Adobe, following are some the features included in the roadmap (with no planned release dates announced yet) for Flash Player and AIR run-time:

  • Stage 3D enhancements and possibly a next version
  • In-built Physics (will be a huge boost)
  • Better compile efficiency and file size reduction for iOS
  • Support for Android Key Lime Pie
  • Mobile Workers (Will tremendously boost AIR’s footprint as Mobile development technology)

While it is not documented on Adobe’s official roadmap webpage, all of the above sounds super exciting. Can’t wait!!

An update to AIR 3.8 Beta and Flash Player 11.8 Beta available on Adobe Labs

With a great addition of Rectangle Textures, updates to AIR 3.8 Beta and Flash Player 11.8 Beta are now available on Adobe Labs.

Rectangles textures are unique type of textures. Although they are 2D too, but doesn’t have mipmaps. Referencing to different areas of this texture has to be done through pixel values and most importantly, they have no power of 2 restrictions on their size.

Good addition. Grab them, and also check out the Release Notes.

Chase has just begun..

It has been 2 years since my last post and so much has changed over this period. It all seems like a dream come true era. All these years I have been busy managing different projects, ranging from small to large; gaming to applications; web to desktop to mobile devices; not-so-successful to successful ones! All that coupled with rapidly changing paradigms of technology has kept me and my team on toes. What has not changed is the dedication & love for ActionScript and Adobe platform as a whole, irrespective of the amount of fuss around other so-called competing technologies. Recent MAX 2013 was such a joy to witness even offline, can’t imagine the exuberant feeling of onsite attendees!

From various perspectives, it has made my belief stronger that Adobe is indeed on right way in facilitating the creative platform for millions. Flash Platform, in specific, has gone through radical innovations in last 2 years. It is now, that I feel is the right time we can say this technology on path of becoming a matured one. Of course, there is lot to prove, offer and stand-out in this jungle, but it is here to stay and grow, much bigger than suspicious brains would have imagined!

So, here it is.. I am thrilled to be able to restart blogging. And this time, I promise to myself to make it continuous, more fun and more contributive.

As the first step, I have changed the blog name to FPS, which is becoming a buzzword for content acceptability on different platforms. And have changed the theme too!

At least a post in a week, not bad 😉

Catch you guys soon.
