I imagine that as ourselves, many people has taken advantage of this great swftools package to transform documents in several formats to SWF and display them in flash-based viewers.

It looks like though that market is moving towards HTML5 and many players are moving their flash based viewers from flash to this standard. So a few questions arise with regards to swftools and custom viewers. So, is there any plans to provide tools to move from flash to html5? Some kind of swftohtml5. Any plans to an html5 basic viewer? Or alternatively, what would be the necessary steps to move our documents converted with swftools to html5. Perhaps transforming them to svg and using an SWF viewer?

Quite a few questions :)


I can't believe this is happening, this is spinning out of control in a really bad way.  Developers are beginning to buy the propaganda now.

There are no compelling technical reasons to switch platforms now.  I really hope they don't stop developing swftools.

I don't understand why all the hits on Flash.  Weird.

The companies behind this madness realize that this could backfire really badly on them.  Having a large market share does not give them the right to dictate how we should develop applications.
