I had been away on vacation the last week or so, and did not get a chance to post about Mondays 8/8/8 news on the announcement of Flash 8 and Studio 8 and the new versions till this morning. Tons of info out there already – its now on the Macromedia homepage as well, so it will be hard to miss. There is already some great content and articles in Macromedia DevNet on 8 as well.

One thing I haven’t seen the other blogs and news sites linking to are the new Security White Papers posted: Flash Player 8 Security and Flash Player 8 Security-Related APIs. Both of these documents are very useful, as there are some major changes in the Flash 8 security sandbox that will have a big impact on the planning for more advanced applications that load data from the web or locally. These are worth the download, take a minute and read through them to familiarize yourself with the issues and solutions that wil impact your usage of Flash Player 8.

Also worth noting is Mike Downeys great rundown of whats new in Flash 8 and another article he put together outlining the lesser-known new features of Flash Professional 8 Good job Mike!
