    I was just browsing the Macromedia forums the other day and found this juicy little tidbit about Director MX for OSX. It turns out Director MX is coming sooner than many have thought. It is OSX native and has a slew of new features, although exact details are still a bit sketchy. Here is a quote from the about the forthcoming release:

    "Miriam Geller showed the next version of Director for the first time. It's not formally announced yet, so there's not yet an estimated ship date or published feature set. It was running in Mac OS X native as well as Windows, and used an MX-style interface. SWF launch-and-edit was shown... just as you can use Fireworks within Dreamweaver and don't have to manage different sets of authoring and deliverable files, Director can invoke Flash to directly edit embedded SWFs... faster, smoother. Screen reader accessibility was shown which does not require a dedicated screen reader, it's all built into the app, cross-platform, with control over which items are read and in what order. This is also pretty close to delivery, although I haven't seen a ship date committed to in print yet."

    The quote can be found, an entry from DevCon.

    Kind of exciting for those whose are sick of using constantly crashing Classic version of Director in Jag.:D

    I think this quote in "Fragments heard when walking around" sums it up:

    Strange really, there's been an OSX version of 8.5.1 on the net since June (or at least that when I first came acorss it), why didn't macromedia release this as an update to mac users (working in classic ain't much fun).

    I hope the next major release of Director supports cross platform projector creation as it's been in Flash for years now - come on sort it out macromedia.
