Flash Optimizer 1.8
Eltima Software has released Flash Optimizer for Mac 1.8, adding full support for Flash 8. Flash Optimizer for Mac is an advanced SWF (Shockwave File) compression utility that significantly reduces the size of most SWF files, saving load time and internet traffic. Flash Optimizer is based on algorithms of shapes, morphing, vectors, fonts, Z-buffer and other optimizations to reduce the size of flash files with curves, zero-objects, ZLib, and more. The update improves overall stability, and includes several minor bug fixes. Additionally, users can optimize all movies created without the help of Flash MX. Flash Optimizer for Mac 1.8 is available for $100 (system requirements were unavailable).
