[UPDATE: OK, I was dead-wrong on this one. Ted was referring to the ability for Flash Player on the client machine to cache versions of the Flex SDK, so your Flex app can be decoupled from the entire weight of the framework, and if the user has already loaded a Flex app they don’t have to re-download a full 500k (or more) swf when they view your app. Read Ted’s description here.]
This is complete speculation, but it’s the only way I can read the following comment posted on Ted Patrick’s blog:
This feature will forever alter how Flex is deployed and I am pretty confident that you will be shocked. Flex is about to become much more distributed. 🙂
I have my fingers crossed that what this is going to mean is that the next version of Flash Lite is going to support Flash Player 9 and that Adobe’s Device Central is going to give us sweet Flex integration and mobile templates so we can develop Flex apps for phones.
Am I reading too much into that sentence? I guess I’ll find out tomorrow.
- So Adobe created a special version of Flash player for Google and Yahoo to index SWF files. This basically goes through your SWF and magically figures out what to click on and how to interact with your application, just like a real person would do. How does it do it?…
- Pretty sweet logo, whoever designed that must be pretty much the best person in the world. Get your 360|Flex stuff here. And if you haven't registered for 360Flex, do that here.
