Adobe Animate

Flash CS5 was released on April 12, 2010 and launched for purchase on
April 30, 2010. Flash CS5 Professional includes support for publishing iPhone applications.
However, on April 8, 2010 Apple changed the terms of its Developer
License to effectively ban the use of the Flash-to-iPhone compiler
and on April 20, 2010 Adobe announced that they will be making no
additional investments in targeting the iPhone and iPad in Flash CS5.
Other features of Flash CS5 are a new text engine (TLF), further improvement to inverse kinematics, and the code snippets panel.

What works

Most of the normal functionalities: + All the drawing tools including 3D transform + All Panels: library, color, align, transform, AS editor… + Time line, layers, tweens + TLF text, Classic text + Open, Save, Build, Test run...

What does not

+ If the bundled Java Runtime Environment fails to initialize, some components will not work (New TLF TextField, New AS editor (fall back to old one), ActionScript will be ignored in the output swf...) + In the workspace, the contents are sometime clipped or hidden. But when I try scrolling or zooming, the contents appear fully again. + The application can only start debug session once. If you attempt debug your application again, the application will notice that the debug socket is being used!


What was not tested

+ Build an AIR application + Run the iPhone app packager

Additional Comments

Install the program in Windows and copy the installed files to Ubuntu. These additional libraries from winetricks are needed: vcrun2008, msxml3, atmlib, gdiplus. I have written detailed process to run Flash CS5 on Ubuntu on my blog at
