What? Where?

To me it seems like Flash is stronger than ever, especially in mobile apps on all mobile platforms, but also desktop.

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplatform/articles/recent-updates.html

I often get the feeling that some people really hasn't got a clue about what Flash is (and what it's not). Clue: it's not a video/youtube player or commercial container on web pages...

Maybe it's time you update your web browser :) Flash has been deactivated in most of them for quite some time now...

Flash is dead today, no new website is developed today with it. It does not work on smartphones who are very important now for websites.

@kamelit0, spud101, OlafS25

Again, I'm not talking about plugins for webpages. And that's what your linked article is about. Who uses Flash for that today anyway?

I was talking about Flash in stand-alone mobile (and desktop) apps, and there Flash is really big, and I have not seen any signs of Adobe dropping their commitment there, rather the opposite.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_AIR

Flash and ActionScript 3 is a really good platform, as easy to develop for as it is powerful. Bytecode is really compact. It's easy to understand why so many games and apps are developed in the Flash/AIR framework.

So, no. Not dead!

Did Adobe not announce recently that development will be stopped?

Ah I read end of Flash Player, not end of flash

ok you could be right even though I think there are lots of alternatives now, Flash is not needed

Seriously? That's not my experience. When ever I am using a PPC machine on the net I tend to come across some site that needs flash. Yes, for the most part, it is a video player embedded on site, so the old fashioned flash video problem hasn't gone away. I tend to get an error that I need to update my flash player or install flash. Using my phone or a PC works as usual.

Oh wait, you said new websites. Oh ok I got ya, so all the old websites which make up the largest percentage of the net still use flash.

@Hypex

new websites are mostly developed to be useful for smartphones and tablets and those do not use Flash anymore. Even for playing video Flash is no longer needed. So yes Flash is dead on web not meaning that there are no sites left using it.

"Work using the new DOS vector API to produce a brand-new filesystem is already underway by Tony Wyatt since quite some time."

Was this ever released? What is it called?

See the last entry in this wiki table (NGFS). The new filesystem is currently distributed with OS4.1FE for the Cyrus and the Tabor boards, so it's not widely available yet but it does exist.

Flash has got more and more of a resource hog over the years it is now a joke that the cpu can be working over time when playing any flash content in a web browser R.I.P flash . To the wonderfully programmers out there in amiga land bring us a good HTML5 browser.

@g01df1sh

I wonder what can replace it? I mean, Flash is good at adventure games, or interactive media. Can HTML5 actually replicate this? Yes I know HTML with the scripts and CSS does a lot but for some reason that wasn't good enough so Flash was used for point and click stuff and Scala meddia type stuff in a browser.

@Hypex

HTML5 at least regarding webpages can replace Flash completely

Also Flash is no longer supported on smartphones and more than half of all internet activity today is based on smartphones

And Flash always was and is buggy, a serious security threat. And support of flash is announced to be dropped

Flash died before Amiga support could happen.

I wonder if the modern World Wide Web will be forgotten before a decent Amiga browser can be compiled. :)

There was some basic support in Voyager and later iBrowse. I think the support in Voyager was adequate for the content of the day but it was very unstable. By the time iBrowse got support it was pretty much irrelevant for content out there.

So there was some Flash support it was just either crappy or not useful.
