In Flash CS5 New Features, author Todd Perkins demonstrates key changes in the CS5 release of Adobe's interactive design and animation software. This course covers enhanced ActionScript features, including code snippets and error handling improvements, new publishing options for Adobe AIR, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Flash Builder integration, and the new Text Layout Framework for detailed text editing. Exercise files are included with the course.
You can use Flash CS5 to create AIR 2.0 applications. AIR 2.0 supports a newer version of WebKit, which supports HTML5 and CSS3. Here's an example of a web browser I created. If I type in a Web site that uses HTML5 or CSS3, you'll be able to see an example through the AIR Flash Player. So, I can click and drag my mouse on the screen to see this canvas gradient using HTML5.
This example is found at html5demos.com. Now, lynda.com is not in any way affiliated with html5demos.com. This is just a teaching example that shows some features of HTML5, and that's why I'm showing it here. So, you can see a few examples of what HTML5 can do, as far as AIR is concerned. For more information about AIR 2, go to labs.adobe.com/technologies/air2. There you'll find everything that's new in AIR 2.0, and you can find information about how to integrate those features into your AIR applications.
