Adobe today announced LiveMotion 2.0.

Adobe today announced LiveMotion 2.0. Many people, including me, belived that LM2.0 would include full support for interactive SVG. But, no, LiveMotion will only publish .swf files. That’s a huge disappointment for the entire SVG community and I think it’s a bad step for Adobe to take. There is a huge interests in standards and XML at the moment, and Adobe has been very succesful with promoting SVG as a open, XML based alternative to Flash.

But at least, LM2.0 seems to be a very nice IDE for Flash. Maybe even better then Macromedias. LM1.0 was the worst software so far, let’s hope this version is much better.
