Disclaimer :I’m not native Eng. speaker. A lot of grammar mistakes could be. First days of November 2015 started from sadly news. In a tech blogs we can see appearing of wrong interpretation of Adobe words about that what they want to do with Flash Professional. Actually was said that they want to rename editor Flash Professional CC into Animate CC and improve it for creation multiplatform content. But technically illiterate authors of the articles do not see the difference between the content creation application and content player. Using own stupidity they understand renaming of “Content creation” product as death of another “Content Player” product.

Hi anyone! I’m porting a game from default DisplayList to Starling for high rendering performance. During this task I meet some inconvenience – game logic required frame script execution inside starling’s MovieClip.

Time to time I get requests for adding new custom language support in Adobe AIR. Unfortunately, officially you can use only English, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Few days ago I started small research about protection of Adobe AIR application from some kind of hackers. Many of you may know that after compilation of Adobe AIR app you will receive also SWF file(s) inside package that can be changed. In all cases that I know – developers simply obfuscate that file(s). But protection actually was not applied.
