I am finally back home from the European tour and I wanted to let you know about all kinds of cool things that have been happening with Flash. We are in the middle of GDC right now and the buzz around Flash is really exciting. Here we go.
Stage3D on mobile is released
You’ve been waiting patiently for a long time and now it is finally here. The AIR 3.2 RC is now on the Adobe Labs site. With this you can package your Stage3D content for iOS and Android. Now there are lots of optimization techniques to help you get your stuff running as fast as possible. Look for more details on those soon.
Watch the Flash Gaming Summit keynote

We have been demoing the Epic Citadel demo for a while now. Just yesterday they released this demo on the web so everyone can play with it. Now this demo requires Flash Player 11.2 that you can get on Adobe Labs. Take it for a test drive!

People have asked for this type of thing for a while and I’m psyched that it is finally here. I did all the HTML and visual design for the site.
