Final Release Candidate Build Flash Player Beta

We just released the final public Release Candidate build beta for the Flash Player 6.

You can find more info, as well as download the beta here.

In order to qualify for one of the prizes (Studio MX, XBox, PS2), you must submit your bugs / issues by this Friday, December 6, 2002.

We are particularly interested in testing of the following areas:

  • Shared objects
  • Text entry (particularly international text)
  • Local files and CD-based content
  • Movies using bitmaps
  • ActionScript intensive movies
  • Windowless Mode
  • Runtime Shared Libraries
  • ActionScript performance
  • Customization of HTTP headers

Please, please, please take a little time and test your content. We are really trying to make this the most solid Flash player release ever.

ActionScript for Flash MX : The Definitive Guide : Sample Chapter

We have posted a chapter from Colin Moock's much anticipated ActionScript for Flash MX : The Definitive Guide.

You can view the chapter here.

You can buy the book here.

I posted this in my previous message on new Flash MX content at the Designer and Developer center, but I wanted to put it in its own post to make sure that it has higher visibility.

New Flash MX Content at

We have updated the Macromedia Designer and Developer center with new Flash MX content today. I am particularly excited about this release because we have an entire chapter from Colin Moock's upcoming ActionScript for Flash MX : The Definitive Guide.

Btw, as usual, if you have suggestions for article topics, or you would like to contribute an article (in English, German, French, Japanese, Koren, or any other language that we have a DesDev version), then just send me an email ( with the article topic you have in mind.
