Adobe roadmap for the Flash runtimes | Adobe Developer Connection.

This is an interesting skim-through. It looks like Adobe is going to shift Flash into focusing on gaming and “premium” video for the next decade.

I can understand wanting to hold on to gaming, as the HTML5 game development space has a lot of room to grow. I do think even Adobe will phase out a focus on game development when the times comes, but for now it seems applicable to continue here.

Premium video. I think it would make more sense if the content for this section was stripped down to the following bullet point offered by Adobe:

Support for content protection (single DRM), which enables premium video content to be licensed for online distribution

That about sums it up.
