About Flash Player 10.x

Flash Player 10.1 was the fi rst release of Flash Player aimed at supporting the development of

content and SWF format deployment to both traditional web browser and mobile devices.

At the time of writing, a beta for Adobe Flash Player 11 was underway, allowing developers to

preview new and enhanced features targeting the next release of the run time. With the potential for

new APIs to be dropped, none of the features could be covered in this book, but look for an

update. For more information, visit the Adobe Labs website ( and

search for Adobe Flash Player 11.

This book centers on the development of Flash content targeting the latest release, Adobe Flash

Player 10.3 using AS3.

Flash is fully supported on Google Android and the BlackBerry Tablet OS mobile platforms. Unless

you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few years, you’ll know Flash isn’t supported on the

Apple iOS platform. However, using AS3 and AIR, you can target your applications to run on the

platform via standalone applications.
