Amethyst Personal Edition (PE) is an editing and project management
environment for developing Adobe Flex and AIR applications using Visual
Studio. In the first quarter of 2009 a Professional Edition release including extended features is intended.
Adobe Systems announced a technology collaboration to optimize and enable Flash Player 10 and AIR for ARM Powered devices, ranging from mobile phones to set-top boxes, mobile internet devices, TVs, automotive platforms, personal media players and other mobile computing devices.
Adobe Systems announced Flash Media Interactive Server 3.5 software and Flash Media Streaming Server 3.5 software, two key components of the Adobe Flash Platform, the standard for delivering breakthrough interactive content, applications, and video on the Web.
The new servers include new media delivery options, such as: dynamic streaming; enhanced H.264 video and High Efficiency AAC audio support; and the ability to pause and seek within a live stream. These innovations improve the quality of video delivered over the Web and offer richer interactive experiences for users.
Microsoft's power with programmers is tied to desktops and laptops, the vast majority of which run Windows. Google is trying to dominate the cloud computing, where applications run on the Web. Adobe, though, is trying to run down the middle with a strategy that touches on both domains.
Adobe Systems Inc. announced the release of Adobe Flash Player 10 software. Interactive designers and developers can leverage the new expressive features and visual performance improvements in Flash Player 10 for unprecedented creative control to deliver the most compelling Web applications, interactive content and high quality video to users across multiple browsers and all major operating systems.
Adobe Systems Incorporated announced the Adobe Foundation, a global philanthropic organization focused on driving positive social change and community improvement.
