So Adobe announced CS5 on Monday. I thought the presentation was pretty cool, but somehow, I was expecting more new features. All of the apps are now 64-bit, which will give it a great speed performance. As far as Flash goes, the new features are:
Text boxes that behave like those in InDesign. You can link text boxes together so that text will flow throughout them.
Spring feature of the Bones tool. Allows you to set a strength and dampening setting so that the bones objects bounce and behave like they are reacting to an external force.
There’s a publish setting in Flash to publish to the iPhone. I’ve talked about this before, but Apple isn’t going to allow this moving forward.
