    Where are the list of new AS3 Methods and Functions since CS 5.5 ?

    Do you member there used to be a time where it was SUPER EXCITING that Flash could export to the iPhone ?

    New functions and Objects were added like:
    and the amazing TransformGestureEvent !

    And then after that...Flash/AIR add support for ANE and suddenly all hell break loose and programming in AS3 is as fragmented as trying to put humpty dumpty back together again, I wish they implemented gyroscope before ANE...

    However I would like to believe they added more common functions and features since then, is there a list of the new AS3 functions since CS5.5 ?

    Red face Flash and AIR Feature lists

    Hi, you can see the new features of Flash updated by version here:
    It lists all the new features on each new runtime release along with the link to its documentation.

    In addition to that, there is also release notes on each runtime release

    Just to clarify, "Flash Pro" has now becomes "Adobe Animate CC"
    However the Flash and AIR are still supported there. If you're developer better using Flash Builder or Intellij Idea

    If you're talking about AS3 you are talking the Flash and AIR runtime then.

    for release notes: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player...easenotes.html

    for new functionalities and their corresponding API docs: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/articles...ture-list.html

    Hi, to find new functions you can go to https://help.adobe.com/en_US/as3/dev/index.html

    or you can find them in flash here:

    and last, this ones probably dumb but I found new flash syntax if you go in notepad++ and (ctrl + f) search enterframe you will see the rest of the flash syntax around that search, you can even rename a function if you use the exact same amount of letters for the new name and your custom functions will run only in that modified player

    my flash projector I analyzed with notepad++ was found here: E:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS6\Players
