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.
