BUY BUY BUY! Rich Internet Applications mit Adobe Flex 3

Ein neues Flex Buch für den deutschen Markt ist erschienen. Es ist von meinem Kollegen Simon Widjaja!
Und ich kann mit Stolz sagen, dass das Kapitel über Adobe AIR (Kapitel 16) aus meiner Feder stammt 😉

Das Buch ist genau das richtige für Einsteiger und kann auch Fortgeschriettenen noch den Feinschliff geben.
Danke Simon für die Möglichkeit.

Adobe Flash Player 10 (Astro)

Adobe Flash Player 10 (Astro) ist da!!!!!!

 Ryan Steward:

Rich Text Layout

With Flash Player 10 we’ve exposed new text APIs
that will let you create your own text rendering controls. We’re going to be
releasing a bunch but if there are things you want to do, you’ll be able to
create your own as well. We’ve now got support for bi-directional text, vertical
text, and complex scripts along with new layout and flow options. This should
meet and exceed what you can do in HTML today and with this release text in
Flash Player will no longer be behind.

3D Effects
We’ve also added new APIs to let you create 3D effects
inside of the player. You’ll be able easily create very interactive experiences
inside and do animation of 2D planes in the 3D world.

Custom Filters and Effects
With the new
Adobe
Pixel Bender
you’ll be able to create your own filters and effects to use
and share with other Flashers. You can do all kinds of visual transformations
and bring those into your Flash and Flex apps. It’s going to make for some very
impressive interfaces.

Dynamic Streaming
We’ve now got the ability in the Flash Player to
dynamically change the video quality depending on the bandwidth that you’ve got
when you’re watching it. That means we can make sure that you’re getting the
best quality possible on the fly. This is probably one of my favorite features
in the new Flash Player.

More Hardware Acceleration
We’ve also added hardware support for
bitmaps, filters, video, and blend modes. You can push all of the rendering
duties for those off to the video card in the users machine which should give an
automatic performance boost for a lot of very graphic-heavy applications. We
also have an option that will let you specify an HTML attribute when you embed
SWFs in the browser to “paint” that SWF using the video card on the machine.
This means you’ll get a similar boost to the one you get when you go full screen
for video.

File Access
Justin
reminded me of the new File APIs which let you prompt the user with a File
Dialog box and instead of uploading it to a server you can take that file and
load it directly into the Flash Player. You’ll also be able to save content from
Flash Player directly to the File system which opens up some cool
possibilities.

 

Der neue Player wird die Grenzen von Flas, Flex und natürlich auch AIR nocheinmal neu pushen!
