To clarify as well - the products haven't been combined at all. They just share similar names now.

Indeed, as Joseph says they are different products. Animate CC (AKA FLash) uses canvas for HTML while Edge Animate uses jquery and CSS. They both publish to HTML5.
It is a pitty that Edge Animate is no longer developed, however I still support the forum and answer questions. It is still working fine in all browsers.
If you are worried about using Edge Animate, there are several alternatives such as Saola Animate which will have a major update in 2018 and Tumult Hype 3. I prefer the former as it supports Windows and Mac while Hype supports only Mac.
Saola Animate will have more capabilities like Edge Animate and is easy to use. I really like it.
Good luck on your project whatever software you want to use.
