Macromedia just announced the sixth version of the Flash IDE and player, Flash MX, which positions Flash as the vanguard of an entirely new project strategy, called Macromedia MX...

Also, are version numbers and years being replaced by arbitrary combinations of letters? Don't you just love the marketing bandwagon...

Windows XP
Visual .NET
Flash MX

Haven't heard the buzz, but I'd suspect it will be a big deal among Macromedia users. I'm an Adobe gal myself, so unless they offer a really KILLER competitive upgrade deal, I doubt I'll see much of it.

Flash always has been technology to take note of.

Now with the improved features such as bookmarking, being able to use back and forward buttons plus the dynamic content it is only gonna get bigger.

People may actually start to realise that its not just an animation tool.

When they figure out a way to make Flash fully indexable via SE spider, I could see it exploding... The visual horror could be tremendous. Animated GIFs are still widely and horribly misused.

OTOH, there are a lot of designers wortht heir salt who may venture deeper into the Flash waters, once indexable Flash content becomes a reality, and properly used, I think Flash can actually offer greater usability to new web users.

You bet it will be big. Adobe is always running a little behind Macromedia when we are talking about web design.

Some new features of Flash MX were already in Live Motion, but MX really rocks!

I am one of the proud owners of a beta release, [screenshots available on profile site -mivox]

Currently we are working on the next update of the site. We are researching with some peoplez and will publish probably saturday, since we all have 40 hr jobs 2.

Cheerio,
