Flash Player 10.1 announcedBy zeh • Oct 5th, 2009 • Category: Developer diaries
Adobe has just announced Flash Player 10.1, managing to add a plethora of new features to it even though it’s not a full new version. Of particular interest to me are the new sound (microphone) capabilities and native multi-touch support, something that could be exploited inside Fnk in a number of ways.
This release also makes it one thing obvious to me: while in development, Fnk will always target the latest version of Flash that’s publicly available, without worrying about user penetration or anything of the sort. Old versions of Fnk will still be available as always, so this shouldn’t be a problem.
Also, Fnk development is close to resuming, now that I finally have a computer at home with everything installed. I can’t wait to play with those features. As a personal playground of Flash capabilities and the code that’s used for them, not being bound to artificial limitations like that is quite liberating.
