      Doesn't anybody have any hints or sneaks or leaks or anything to share about Director 11?

      Anything?!?

          Hi Marty,

          Well, I can tell you that a MAX session will be giving some hints - so maybe sign up or find
          someone going:)

            I haven't been to a DevCon/Max for 5 years now and would love to attend one again. But, it's gonna take more than a Sneak Peak and a single "Hello, World" session to justify the $2K it'd cost me.

            I'll be there next year, after Director has established itself as The Official 2D Casual Games-Authoring Platform of Planet Earth and everyone is suddenly interested in it again. And I'll buy Dean a drink. ;-)

              Can those that will go to MAX give some hints for the others of us that cant go?

                I was very interested in going last year, even with practically no Director
                presense. But, timing and other things worked against me going. I did put it as a
                possibility for this year. But, wasn't inspired enough to make a real commitment.
                Will be around $2K just to get there for me. Anyway, maybe next year. And Marty, I
                will take you up on that drink:)

                regards

                  Hopefully there will be at least one Director representative that will go and
                  will report back. If you look at Director Online:
                  http://director-online.com/
                  the latest article is 'Adobe MAX 2006'. The article before that is 'MAX 2005'.

                        JavaScript and Java are two (very) different things.
                        Full support for JavaScript language in Director 11: probably true.

                          I don't think Director's "problems" have to do with what languages are supported. I sure hope the folks at Adobe realize that too.

                          Better performance and stability, better web plug-in implementation, better support for advanced 2D graphics and flashlike movieclips - that'd be a good start IMHO.

                            I hope some Adobe guy reads this:
                            Director is the solution for a problem flash users are strugling for years
                            You(Adobe) should make another program that will be focused on just ONE thing: take swfs, wrap into director files.That will, finally, makes 'flash' content save and undecompilable.And will help spread the shockwave plugim
                            I know, we can already do that, but it would be a lot better if Adobe makes it clear that thats his official solution for this problem.
                            Someone can say 'we dont need another product for that' well, we dont need flex to make applications either, and here it is
