Flash sets its sights on app development

FYI Macromedia Has Big Plans for Flash <http://www.devx.com/free/hotlinks/2002/ednote020502/ednote020502.asp> Macromedia plans to make Flash a platform for building applications rather than just animations—and to make the Flash player—rather than the browser itself—the primary target for robust Web application development. ... Allaire says that the next-generation Flash player will be able to run fully connected, intermittently connected, or as a standalone application platform, increasing its utility and flexibility. ... Macromedia will continue to deliver Flash players for an increasing set of hardware and software platforms and will also make it easier to consume content from Web services, to interact with Java and .NET components, and work seamlessly with Macromedia's ColdFusion server technology. Regards, Ed

Very cool. Wonder when it will be available? I'd much prefer to use Rebol, though without a browser plugin the audience is rather limited which makes it hard to justify using for certain applications. When I mentioned that a browser plugin would give Rebol a great boost, here's the unfortunate official answer I received: We agree with you but can not justify the investment for any more free software at this time. How do you guys get the general public to purchase/run your commercial Rebol applications? Do you provide an installation CD or disk with Rebol View on it, or a link with instructions on how to install it from Rebol.com? Scot

This is probably good news for RT, as it should help stir up the market. --Ryan Ed O'Connor wrote:

Yep, both. The Rebol/View EULA states: ---- You may redistribute the SOFTWARE provided that you include this entire License AGREEMENT, and all copyright and trademark notices; and agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend REBOL from and against any claims or lawsuits, including attorneys' fees, that arise from use, reproduction, or distribution of the SOFTWARE. ---- For source protection, and to create standalone apps, you become a rebol/alliance member. This involves earnings reports and a $499 licensing advance, so its pretty much limited to the very serious. I hope to join soon. --Ryan
