The only reasonable way for the BBC to do it's job and offer it's iPlayer catch-up TV service (last 7 days TV on demand) across more than just one brand of Windows was using Flash.
People said that when the thing first came out.
And look... it has come to pass :-)
Projects like Adobe's Media Player and adding H.264 (high quality with low bandwidth use) support in Player are starting to make real sense now...
Two interesting posts over on the FlexCoders mailing list recently, related to Adobe's Thermo graphical design tool for Flex.
The release notes for Flex Builder Linux don't match what I had to do to get 32bit Eclipse running on my 64bit Linux install, so here are the steps I took. They don't cover installing the (debug) Flash player into a 32bit version of FireFox, as this is well covered elsewhere.
Sounds like change is afoot for the popular Flex Cairngorm architecture.
This looks less like the Enterprise / plugable changes discussed previously, and right now I can't see the point of 'just' accessing the Model via the Controller, unless there is Cunning Support for automatically keeping (parts of) Model sync'ed via LCDS or something.
