Flash Lite 3.1 OEM Edition Now Available!
Adobe has made available Flash Lite 3.1 for OEMs which basically means that companies can now start with testing the next generation of Flash Lite content on a range of S60 3rd Edition devices and most possible on upcoming touch enabled 5th generation of the S60 platform.
The new Flash Lite version brings lot of improvements in terms of stability and features, performance has been optimized through more efficient resource management, resulting in improved rendering, scripting speed, and code optimization.
Speaking about features it's important to say that new version is fully capable to process and render Flash 9 Web content as long as it is published as AS2 because AS3 engine is not ported to FL3 yet.
Annoyance of being unable to browse a Web sites on the Web Browser for S60, because the are Flash based, should largely disappear. It is much faster and brings much better browsability than FL3. Furthermore it has the native support for the h.264 codec and allows the smoother video playback with less processor requirements.
Here’s quick summary of what’s new in FL3.1:
- Much better browsability than FL3
- Support for h.264 codec
- Flash 9 content will play in FL3.1 as long as it is published as AS2. AS3 engine is not ported to FL3 yet.
