Great news for multiplayer flash games!
In the latest beta release of Flash Player 10, Adobe introduced the RTMFP support.
In short this technology will allow P2P communication between players and UDP:
Direct (P2P) communication between Flash players.
Every flash application will be able to connect to another without going through a server, saving bandwidth and lowering latency.
A Flash Media Server will be required to establish the connection between players.
UDP communication with a server
The next version of Flash Media Server (and maybe of Red5) will allow audio and video streaming from and to the flash player over the UDP, which is a more efficient way to deliver low latency packets.
Applications like Skype and the majority of multiplayer games already use that with obvious advantages.
Action Message Format (AMF) is a compact binary format that is used to
ActionScript object graphs. Once serialized an AMF encoded object graph
to persist and retrieve the public state of an application across sessions or
endpoints to communicate through the exchange of strongly typed data.
BlazeDS is the server-based Java remoting and web messaging technology that enables developers to easily connect to back-end distributed data and push data in real-time to Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR applications for more responsive rich Internet application (RIA) experiences.
Previously available only as part of Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES, Adobe is announcing its plans to contribute the proven BlazeDS technologies to the community under the LGPL v3. BlazeDS gives the rapidly growing Adobe developer community free access to the powerful remoting and messaging technologies developed by Adobe.
The source code will be available for download in early 2008.
In short: more AMF servers for free, other than RED5
I’ve not blogged too much lately, however, there was some strange “activities” on my blog…
I’ve updated wordpress some days ago because I’ve noticed some spam links in my sidebar, but as it seems this wasn’t enough to fix the problem.
Luckily, I’m using subversion to manage wordpress updates, in this way I can see what happened to my wordpress:
M 6377 wp-includes/default-filters.php
M 6377 wp-includes/wp-db.php
M 6377 wp-includes/gettext.php
M 6377 wp-includes/pluggable.php
M 6377 xmlrpc.php
M 6377 index.php
M 6377 wp-admin/admin.php
M 6377 wp-admin/index.php
There was a new file class-mail.php and the others were modified.
Luckily nothing that a few svn revert commands couldn’t heal
