I just read on moock’s blog that kevin lynch, macromedia’s chief software architect, demonstrated the next generation version of the flash player at the macromedia flash conference in tokyo, japan.
only a few features were shown, but it seems they are great, expecially, as we were already heard few time ago, for the graphics.
There is a video available, taken from te conference, in which these features are shown:
- a new type-rendering engine
- performance improvements
- bitmap effects (blur, dropshadow, colour matrix etc)
- realtime video alpha channel
