Hi there, check out the "bad news with vista/director" thread on the
Ritesh from Adobe actually talked about the next version of director and the
He hinted at a directX9 / Vista upgrade for the next Director, and actual
new 3D features the version after that.... A long way off, but at least they
are trying to update it long term.
I see.. that's actually helped me to look on the bright side a bit more - i thought Adobe had forgotten about us...
Roll on "The second half of 07" :)
Adobe changed the statement (somewhere on the Director Dev Center) to the 2nd half of 2007.
I'll be giving a talk at the e-Learning Guild Conference next week about how my company uses Director, and Adobe will also be in that session talking about the new version of Director.
The #1 thing I'm waiting for is the MacIntel player...living in Rosetta just to view Shockwave is really tough.
Great, would be interested to hear what they say.. will it be published anywhere?
Just wrote this in Director Basics in relation to a similar question.
The Director FAQ is up to date.
The Director release period was initially the first half of the year, now has
changed to second half.
I have spoken to Adobe people recently in relation to the launch of CS3. In the
context of this release, there will be some updated Director information
communicated to the public. I'll follow that up and see what's happening.
You can email me directly if you'd like further info. But once again, Adobe WILL
BE releasing a new version of Director this year.

If you are not using Director for 3d projects, it works very well on Vista ( at least so far). I have been working on a project using MX 2004 10.1 on Vista Ultimate 64 with no issues to date.
database usage (INM), browser integration (JP), file manipulation, system integration (Buddy), audio (SWA), forms, OSControl, copy/paste, etc all have worked without a hitch. ( small issue in OSControl but fixable)
Just make sure you run your account on Vista as an administrator and you should be fine so long as you don't develop for 3d/DirectX.
