That's cool... but I'm still paying off a friend's credit card bill for Flash3. :0)

Besides the latest browsers have the Flash3 plug-in built into it, so I don't have to worry about losing viewers waiting to download a new plug-in. WebTV only supports flash as high as Flash 3 anyway....

I quess I can always download the trial version if I ever get into an "envelope pushing" mood. Hasn't happened yet, but it might someday....

Seems to me they could have, oh I don't know, animated the tour of new features.

No matter, I preordered it today (free upgrade since we just got 4 at the office last week). The new features look fab-u-lous.

wiremommy: just got back from flashforward2000 (which sucked and was a huge waste of $$$). the new version is incredibly stable, and has enormous upgraded features from 4. particularly interesting is a smartclip: kind of like a moviclip but with saved scripting as well. helps share files. YUM! and actionscripting is now almost exactly the same as javascript, and is totally compatible with javascript (i assume that's new).
