Return to 2001

Now we are in the year 2011, Google Inc has developed Swiffy, at their labs. Great tool and a great initiative too.

Swiffy allows you, basically, to convert .swf applications into HTML version 5 aplications.

Alas, the converted document does not has all the needs, neither the goals of the original source format. And I am speaking about ActionScript version Two.  lA web programming language dated in the year 2004. Then, imagine going further in your professional calendar of milestones and projects..

Here, some alerts from this site:

Color transformations with an alpha addition term are not supported. (78 occurrences)
The ActionScript function clearInterval is not supported. (3 occurrences)
The ActionScript class ContextMenuItem is not supported. (4 occurrences)
The ActionScript method MovieClip.getBytesLoaded() is not supported. (1 occurrences)
The global ActionScript property _global is not supported. (1 occurrences)
The ActionScript method MovieClip.stopDrag() is not supported. (2 occurrences)
The ActionScript class BlurFilter is not supported. (2 occurrences)
The ActionScript function setInterval is not supported. (4 occurrences)


Well, for a person trained in the delights and possibilities of that ECMAScript children language known aby the name of ActionScript, this is no less that being back into 2001. Like in A Space Odissey.
