Flash Catalyst

Flash Catalyst (formerly codenamed Thermo) has been around on Adobe Labs for a while now but I’m still meeting lots of people who know nothing of it – if you’ve ever wanted to create interfaces in Photoshop or Illustrator and then add simple functionality without coding (you’d need to hand over the completed project to a Flex developer to get the most out of it) then your day has arrived.

Click this link to watch a movie about it and visit the FC page here.

There are feeds from the Labs site which you can subscribe to in any feed reader – Firefox would be an excellent choice (if you’re using Apple Mail then it has a built in feed reader) so you can keep up with the latest developemnts at Adobe.

The feed URL’s are:

  • RSS 1.0: http://weblogs.macromedia.com/labs/index.rdf
  • RSS 2.0: http://weblogs.macromedia.com/labs/index.xml
  • ATOM: http://weblogs.macromedia.com/labs/atom.xml

If you’re not using the world’s most popular browser already, you can download Firefox today!
