Adobe Director 11 Updates
Here is the latest Adobe Director 11 updates. It’s a minor updates if compare with my previous post – Adobe Director 11 updated News.
Anyway, least is better than none. Let’s see the news I got from Adobe forum.
Dean Utian has mentioned
John Dowdell, an Adobe Developer Support person made some comments on his
blog in the last few days speculating that Director’s development cycle
is over. He is not part of the Director team and was just guessing. The
one positive result of his comment is that it has brought out some
public comments from key people in the Director development team to set
the record straight.

close as many of the cracks and legacy bugs and build a much stronger base for
future development. So, while Director 11 may not have the wave of new features
we’d all like to see (like 3D engine etc.), I’m hopeful it will be the start of
a stronger future under Adobe.
If Adobe really wanted to depreciate Director, the could have written it off now
and avoided OS updates and things like Unicode. To me, this investment of time
and resources shows they ARE NOT looking at Director as a short term thing.
Stay tuned for more updates!
