More Awesomeness From Adobe

Adobe just released the AIF Toolkit which lets you create GPU-accelerated visual effects by using some sort of a pixel shader programming language. Apparently this technology, Hydra, will be included in Flash. Hmm, time to learn Flash and Flex more deeply?

    Haha! I’m discovering Flex to, and I’m looking forward using it to build nice looking UI.
    I’m bookmarking this AIF Toolkit! :-)

    Wow Adobe seems to be continue pushing hard for true innovation, something that has faded in Java in my opinion. No wonder PDF and Flash are de facto standards. Nice going Adobe!

    Hello there,
    I know this question doesn’t have anything to do with your article, but i really need help on this, and i need a good, neutral opinion.
    I accidentally erase some files from my PC and i’ve tried to recover them. I found a programm “Handy Recovery”. But i want to know if this is the best option to buy or i could get a better one? These files are really important.
    So i hope you can help me.
    Thanks so much.
    I’ll be waiting for your answer.

  4. Look at their component objects structure. That was so easy for me to add layout management to their UIComponent.
    To me, it’s like Swing without AWT.
