I wish Adobe would explain why they are keeping Flash alive and trashing great apps like Fireworks.

Trashing Fireworks? I haven't heard of that.

But the reasons for keeping Flash around are good.

1. It's still used quite a lot by Animators, Artists, Game Makers, and Web Developers.

2. HTML5 is just an umbrella term covering the real HTML 5 (which is just a minor standards revision), JavaScript and CSS3 and realistically can't do anything more than what HTML4 and JavaScript could.

As a result, Flash is still superior than HTML5 in most respects.

Flash gets a lot of negative opinions because of it's misuse. Using Flash for navigation when the page itself is using basic HTML is bad web design.

That same navigation can be constructed using the HTML5 umbrella.

Adobe's greed with their Creative Cloud subscription model is sickening. They are yet another corporation that doesn't want Americans to own anything. At least with a perpetual license you could re-sell it and keep the application on your computer. Now it's a rental like Rent-a-Center except with Rent-a-Center you actually own the overpriced crap at the end of the day.

Petition against it is over 30,000 so far...

I too despise the subscription model. Even though CS6 is stupidly expensive, at least I'd be able to keep it.

Still, I can't afford CS6, and I don't have the means to pay for the subscription model.

As a result, I am seemingly stuck with CS4. I wonder how long it will be until even terminal commands won't help Flash CS4 run on current versions of OS X?

Only reason I was able to get CS4 some time ago was because of student pricing.

I have the Web Creative Suite 5.5, which includes Flash and its accompanying programs. The mere installation of this software can slow a Mac down... using it is fraught with obstacles. I am not a pro designer but I know how to RTFM, which is next to useless. I stand with Steve Jobs in his distaste for this anomalous software.

I am also disturbed that Flash is now a preference pane in SysPrefs. Everyday I go there and change the settings back to where I put them the day before. I resent this intrusion. I do not like to be controlled by my software.

To the developers of "Edge" and like-minded programs: please succeed. And most Mac users will thank you.

And why is that? Is it because Steve Jobs said so? There isn't anything wrong with Adobe software. Steve Jobs may have been a good businessman, but he certainly wasn't right about wanting to demonize Adobe software when the real problem was his and apple's inferior and overpriced hardware and software.

Larry, if Adobe software is as awesome as you say, why did they abandon their efforts to port Flash over to Android?

Steve was spot on about Flash on mobile platforms. Even Adobe had to face up to reality.

Typography/Type setting is finally workable for a graphic designer.. kudos to Adobe to have answered designers' prayers ;-) Seems overall CS5 is a great leap.. 64 bits and good functionalities. So far I'm smiling a big smile.. seems my life will be a little easier..

Yay - that's great news, Maclover! I'm on the fence about whether to upgrade or not, so I look forward to your (and others) further reviews.
So far, the only in-depth review I've seen is from Dave at arstechnica:

I don't understand why Flash is so poor at handling type setting.. this is beyond me.. has Adobe forgotten that content often n includes text ? I love Flash for many things but its handling of type is the most retarded thing I have ever witnessed in any software ever... seriously...

Static text which should retain type settings goes all over the place when exported as swf's depending on used fonts. the handling of fonts was always awkward for lack of a worse word.. I think before adding new features.. Adobe should really really concentrate on this aspect.. TYPE is extremely important.. I never understood why Flash makes it so complicated. Can't they sort of make it act more like a page layout program in that respect ?!

TYPOGRAPHY is one of the reasons certain web designers moved from html/CSS to Flash so make it really work well... Hope CS5 has news in that respect... DOn't think of just the nerdy coding side of your customers but also of the visual designers in us...

The description says "delivers support for the latest update of Adobe Flash Player 9" . I was hoping this would update Flash Media Encoder also, but after the update (which took forever to install), FME still only shows Flash 7 and 8 as being options. No sign of Flash 9.

Ooops, I should have said "Adobe Flash CS3 Video Encoder" in the previous post and not "Flash Media Encoder"...

Flash CS3 on a Mac runs horribly slow.

You may not notice it on first run, but especially after a 'Test Movie' you'll notice extremely lagged performance, only resolved by quitting and reopening the application.

Adobe has not addressed this issue, which has been reported across the web, ranging from Quad PPC G5 users, to Intel Mac Pro users.

Although some Mac users have reported not experiencing any lagged performance.

to me this seems like a job half-done. i dunno what the hell adobe have been doing since they took over macromedia a couple of years ago - but i was expecting way better than this from the first 'adobe interfaced' version of flash.

sure, there are a number of nice tweaks to the GUI and the auto-collapsing panels make it a lot nicer to use on a small monitor - but there are still way way too many of the absolutely teethgrindingly annoying 'macromedia-isms' still lurking under the surface.

i realise ironing out all the quirks must be a huge job for adobe - after all 'logic' and 'consistency' were not words you'd ever associate with macromedia's product design! but, for me, flash still has a long way to go before it gets to the stage were i feel like the app is working for me and not fighting against me at every turn.

[which is what makes using most other adobe apps such a painless experience.]

I also updated to 9.0.2 and the update hung halfway through the process, so I restarted and ran it again. It appears to have installed properly, but now when I quit Flash, it hangs on quit, and requires a force quit.
