      Flash Player Beta Channel Update

      Flash Player 11.8 builds are now available.  You can download Flash Player here: http://www.adobe.com/go/flashplayerbeta.



      New Features


      • Recursive stop on MovieClip: This feature allows a game developer to effectively pause/stop a running SWF without having to iterate through all of the objects on the DisplayList. A new method called stopAllChildren is added to the DisplayObjectContainer ActionScript class to provide a mechanism by which developers can stop the timeline animations of all MovieClip objects that are children of the corresponding DisplayObjectContainer.'
