Adobe Open Screen Project

Writing about web page http://www.adobe.com/openscreenproject/faq/index.html

Adobe announced the Open Screen Project today. The project will allow access to key Flash specifications (AMF, SWF, FLV etc.) and remove licencing restrictions on Flash and AIR for devices. The stated aims are:

-Removing restrictions on use of the SWF and FLV/F4V specifications
- Publishing the device porting layer APIs for Adobe Flash Player
- Publishing the Adobe Flash® Cast™ protocol and the AMF protocol for robust data services
- Removing licensing fees – making next major releases of Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR for devices free

Fantastic news – actually something that may have been lost in the noise here is that it seems like AIR is definitely coming to devices. Allowing access to the SWF specifications is a major step for Adobe. Kevin Lynch of Adobe describes the rationale behind OSP in this video.
