Adobe Animate

Version 9; the first Adobe branded version of Flash, to be released with the Adobe Creative Suite 3

Flash CS3 is the first version of Flash released under the Adobe brandname, and features improved integration with Adobe Photoshop, improved vector drawing tools, becoming more like Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Fireworks.
ActionScript 3.0 was released with this version, along with ActionScript Virtual Machine 2.0 (AVM2) for faster code execution and garbage collection[8] New programming features included : strongly typed variables
with type safety, runtime errors, improved events, display list instead
of "depth" system, and many new classes (Socket, ByteArray, Loader,
RegExp, etc.).[9] AS3 allowed entire applications to be written in code, without needing the Flash timeline.
