New Zinc Supports Adobe Flash Player 9, ActionScript 3 and Flex 2

Multidmedia Limited releases Zinc an update of their Zinc v2.5 which will now include ActionScript 3 and Flash Player 9 capability. The update coincides with Adobe announcing the availability of Flash Player 9, the next-generation Flash Player client runtime. Flash Player 9 will provide a more secure, lightweight, robust runtime environment for rich media and enterprise-ready rich Internet applications.

With Flash Player 9 providing a new application runtime capability for Adobe Flex 2, the update from MDM will expand Zinc's capabilities into new products and technology. Flex 2 provides developers with a comprehensive, integrated set of tools and technology for fast, end-to-end development of rich and innovative web applications. Zinc will allow users to migrate their work from Flash 8 to Flex and Flash 9 with minimal code changes to {mdm} script.

The update to Zinc will mean the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) will have the ability to specify which ActiveX flash control is bundled with the application, be it Flash 8 for legacy applications or Flash 9 for those on the cutting edge. With the new MDM proprietary SWC, users can now link into the MDM runtime using Flex and ActionScript 3.

The updates to Flash and Zinc will mean that Developers can now deliver powerful and dynamic multimedia content and applications via ActionScript 3.0 and a new highly optimized ActionScript Virtual Machine (AVM).
