Flash 10 (beta) released, ex Flash developer feels his age

Published May 15th, 2008

OK so I haven’t really done much with Flash for a few years now but I’ll admit I was taken aback when I saw this morning that Adobe has released a beta of version 10. The tenth version!

Don’t worry, I’m not going to get bogged down in all the nostalgia stuff. But looking at Flash now — with streaming audio and video, built-in 3D effects, advanced text manipulation and on and on — and thinking about some of the ‘amazing’ techniques that I (and others) experimented with back in the the day, makes me feel very old.

    Wow!! You’re absolutely right. I remember working with the first versions of flash.

    Now it’s changed so much I don’t get invovled.

    Thanks for all you great scripts!
