SWFAddress 2.0 Released

SWFAddress Logo

The long awaited update to SWFAddress has been released and is ready for download. Rostislav has been posting update notes listing new features, such as the new SEO abilities, all week leading up to the release.

New features include:

  • Support for multiple Flash movies in the same HTML page and Ajax.
  • Event listeners for ActionScript and JavaScript.
  • New SWFAddressEvent class with support for INIT and CHANGE types.
  • New unobtrusive SEO technique.
  • Support for Adobe Flash CS3.
  • Support for Flash Player 7 with the Flash/JavaScript Integration Kit.
  • Support for SWFObject 2.0, UFO and Adobe's Active Content embedding.
  • New strict mode that adds trailing slashes by default.
  • New helper methods for link, window and popup management.
  • Ability to configure the script with query parameters.
  • The swfaddress.html is optional and not used by default.
  • Lots of new and improved Flash based samples.
  • Various optimizations and fixes.
  • API docs for ActionScript 3 and JavaScript.

Rostislav has been hard at work on this project for quite some time, and the improvements include those which were the most requested by developers. I'm also happy to have been a part of this release by helping with the documentation and an AS3/Flash CS3 sample.

I should also note that rumor has it there may be some t-shirts available to those who donate to the project and help fund future development!

In Madrid with XPLANE then Brighton for Flash on the Beach

Title pretty much says it all, but I'm in Madrid, Spain working with the XPLANE Madrid office for a few days before heading over to Brighton, UK for Flash on the Beach. I then come back to Madrid for a couple of additional days of work (...and Spanish wine and tapas) before heading back home to Portland.

If you plan on attending Flash on the Beach, shoot me an email (info [at] jonnymac [dot] com) and we'll meet up for a drink.
