MAX Chicago – Short Review

The MAX in Chicago is just over and many awesome new things came up.

There are new betas for Flex 3 and AIR and the prerelease of the new Adobe Media Player.

Other new betas, tools and plugins are on Adobe Labs so check it out.

If you want to view the sneak peeks check Aral Balkan’s blog for Flash Player 10 and Thermo and Peter Elst’s blog for the rest ;).

Just to name a view new things Flash Player 10 (Astro) with new text rendering engine, 3D support and AIF rocks. Thermo is a dream for Flex designer developer workflow.

The sneak peek of “Flash “Next” showed cool new timeline features and inverse kinematics!
Flash on C/C++ offers new ways and the Quake demo was really great. With Flash Home it is possible to build rich and intelligente mobile user interfaces and Photoshop Express impressed with wonderfull image effects.

Not featured in the videos but very powerfull too are the Flex Skin Design Extensions. There are plugins for Fireworks, Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash to build really custom designed components! So in the future you have to look twice to recognize a Flex app 😉

I will be at MAX in Barcelona and I am sure I will explore more cool stuff.
