Today is a great day for Haxe community !
In a press conference today, the Adobe Flash Team Manager announced that they will drop ActionScript3 in favor of Haxe starting with Flash Player 11 !
Here's the official announcement :
Today Adobe® has decided to drop support for the Flash® Player scripting language ActionScript3® starting from the next Flash® Player 11 (codename « Camel Love »). After talks with Sun® regarding the possibility to replace AS3® with Java®, we have decided to choose the open source Haxe programming language as a replacement.
We believe that Haxe will help us strengthen the Flash® Platform® by providing us with a state-of-the-art programming language and a fast compiler. We also have plans together with Mozilla® and Microsoft® to integrate Haxe directly into mainstream Internet browsers.
Finally, we believe that open source will safe the world, and Adobe® as well.
