Flash Player 10 aka Astro announced

Author: seven October 1, 2007

My main man C4RL05 just got back from the Adobe's MAX keynote in rainy Chicago. He reports that they announced "Astro" aka Flash Player 10 and demonstrated it's top 3 new features: better text handling, custom filters and something they call "simple 3D". The custom filters allow people to create their own using a language called Hydra. Runtime execution seemed similar to the predefined filters. I think this could be really useful for shading and special effects. C4RL05 is disappointed by 3D features, and lack of 3D hardware support. I just want to see how they bettered font embedding in text components. :)
