Adobe Calls For Devs To Contribute to a "Flash 9 Wishlist"

"OK," Says Mike Downey, "Let's Hear Those Great Ideas!"

While very proud of the work that his team has done in Flash 8, Adobe's Flash Product Manager Mike Downey (pictured) nonetheless concedes that there are several things that just couldn't make it into the Flash 8 release. Now developers therefore have the first of what he says will be "many chances" to submit their feature wishes for what will become Flash 9.

(Till now it had always been codenamed "BLAZE.")

"Here is one of many chances that you'll have to submit your feature wishes," Downey writes, on his popular blog. "Please limit your comments to feature requests. It also helps if you include a use case for your feature request - ie, how would you use the feature, what would be the impact to your business, etc. These are all criteria that we examine when we decide whether to build a feature or not."

Feature requests, Downey notes, can also be submitted via the Macromedia Wish Form.

"OK," he says, to finish, "let's hear those great ideas!"
