“To more accurately represent its position as the premier animation
tool for the web and beyond, Flash Professional will be renamed Adobe
Animate CC, starting with the next release in early 2016.”
“Animate CC will continue supporting Flash (SWF) and AIR formats as
first-class citizens. In addition, it can output animations to virtually any
format (including SVG), through its extensible architecture.”
