Adobe Labs – Flash Player 10

Adobe Labs just released the new Flash player 10 beta. With new technologies like 3D support and the new Pixel Bender Shaders it is a next level in the flash player enviroment.
The Shaders are formally know as Hydra and allow the user to render image data on the graphics card. Awesome! ..

Also new in flash player 10:

Advanced Text Layout
– A new, highly flexible text layout engine, co-existing with TextField, enables innovation in creating new text controls by providing low-level access to text offering right-to-left and vertical text layout, plus support for typographic elements like ligatures.

Enhanced Drawing API
– Runtime drawing is easier and more powerful with re-styleable properties, 3D APIs, and a new way of drawing sophisticated shapes without having to code them line by line.

Visual Performance Improvements
– Applications and videos will run smoother and faster with expanded use of hardware acceleration. By moving several visual processing tasks to the video card, the CPU is free to do more.

Also very cool are the “typed arrays” and animating non-embedded texts….

Developing for Flash player 10 Astro:
Also developers can now develop for the flash player 10. You just have to update your MXMLC ( click here! ) and you are all set to go! And if you still don’t know how it works…. Lee Brimelow has posted a good video tutorial about the subject.

Have fun!
