Adobe lays out Flash roadmap for next 5-10 years

Posted on Thursday, February 23 2012 @ 19:52:32 CET by

ARS Technica reports Adobe has presented a roadmap for its Flash platform, detailing how the company expects to meet developers' needs over the next five to ten years. Full details over here.
Looking further ahead, with version "Next," the company wishes to make Flash a platform that meets developers' needs "over the next five to 10 years." Central to this will be substantial work to improve the ActionScript programming language used to develop Flash applications. Adobe intends to add support for strictly-enforced static typing, so that a greater range of coding errors are detected as soon as developers make them, and to enable greater performance optimization (a similar strategy to the one Google is using for its Dart programming language).

Though Adobe envisages a long future ahead for Flash and AIR, the platform is nonetheless being scaled back. Flash on Android is essentially dead, with the company's decision not to support Flash in Chrome for Android. With the plugin never even an option on iOS, this means that the two biggest smartphone and tablet platforms are Flash-free, and will remain that way forever. However, both these platforms support the development of standalone applications using the AIR runtime.
