I kind of wear many hats here. So, due to the position, I may not utilize a certain product for 4-5 months on occasion. This happened with Edge Animate. So we're done now? If Flash (Animate) the way forward? How close is it to Flash and can I plan on HTML5 support? Sorry to seem a little out of the loop on this one.
Edge Animate is no longer being developed and more resources have been provided to the Animate CC (Flash Professional) team. I wrote extensively about all of this here - Adobe Animate CC: The Evolution of Flash Professional – In Flagrante Delicto! - so that may help you as there are a few components to the whole affair.
