Adobe Edge HTML5 tool brings an alternative to Flash
"[For] the first public preview release, we focused on animation. Over the public preview period, we'll be adding additional functionality. We'll be incorporating feedback from the community, taking those requests into account," Fernandez added.
Coming up next are actions triggered by events, video and audio elements, both supported by HTML5, but also support for various graphical formats like PNG, GIF, JPEG and SVG.
Adobe Edge is now available as a free download, but it hasn't yet reached commercial status – the final tool is expected to roll out some time next year and Adobe promises to factor in feedback from the developers community. The company promises to quickly update the products and add new features and functionality as the release date looms closer.
