10 Most Important Flash Platform Developments of 2010

All the buzz about HTML5 in 2010 and the Apple/Adobe rift makes it pretty easy to think it was a grim year for Flash. But the Flash team at Adobe wouldn’t agree. They’ve posted The Flash Platform Top 10 for 2010, an interesting list reminding us that 2010 was actually a pretty good year for Flash developers. Apart from all the worrying that the sky was falling or that their skill set was going to go the way of horse-drawn carriage repair.

  • 10 – Mobile/multiscreen Development with Flex and Flash Builder
  • 9 – Introduction of InMarket
  • 8 – MAX 2010 – Giveaways and More Giveaways and Demos and More Demos
  • 7 – Flash Access 2.0
  • 6 – Open Source Media Framework 1.0
  • 5 – Partnership with Amazon: Use Flash Media Server on Amazon Web Services – Pay as You Go
  • 4 – AIR for TV
  • 3 – 3D “Molehill” APIs for Flash Player
  • 2 – FP 10.2 beta – Stage Video preview
  • 1 – Flash Player 10.1 for Mobile

I have to agree that the launch of InMarket was pretty important, even if it hasn’t received much buzz yet.

The Adobe post didn’t mention the Flash-to-HTML5 demo or SkyFire bringing Flash to iOS and Android.
