Apparently, there’s a new version of Flash in the works, code-named 8-ball, that will include a lot of innovative new features.
- Live Photoshop-like effects such as drop shadows, glows, and strokes
- MUCH faster rendering and better processor management on both Macs and PCs
- A better anti-aliasing engine for text (codenamed Saffron)… sIFR will benefit greatly from this
- Fully alpha-maskable video, with much better compression as well
- Much much more…
Unfortunately, I doubt it will include a feature to prevent peopole from making pointless intros for their web sites.
