Director coming to Mactels

Macromedia Director is still alive, despite widespread rumors that the software would be dropped by Adobe. "Director will be updated to run natively on Intel-based Macintosh computers and on the Windows Vista operating system," said Tom Higgins, product manager for Director and the Shockwave Player. "In addition, Adobe plans to update projector creation abilities and the Shockwave Player to offer native run-time playback on the full range of modern hardware and operating systems. This will enable developers to create content for both Intel-based Macintosh computers and the Windows Vista operating system," Higgins said. Director was thought by some to have fallen through the cracks after Adobe's acquisition of Macromedia, according to Digital Producer Magazine.

    Adobe need to position Director as a powerful Web /Hybrid Application development platform. I been telling them for years that they need to create a multi-threaded engine in director and then the true power can be reached from within director !
