tell me again that Adobe does not listen ?


#3

what’s the meaning : •Disabling Packaging of Shared Android Applications
•Moving to WKWebView for StageWebView on iOS


#4

means that when you will compile an Android APK
you will only be able to publish it as apk‑captive‑runtime

see ADT package command

on iOS to show a webview you were using UIWebView
and now there is a replacement named WKWebView

eg.

Important
Starting in iOS 8.0 and OS X 10.10, use WKWebView to add web content to your app. Do not use UIWebView or WebView.

update May 10, 2017

  • Enhanced Profile

With AIR 26, we are introducing a new stage3D profile “Enhanced” for AIR Mobile. This will be a new constant in Context3DProfile class. Availability of “enhanced” profile indicates the availability of AGAL4. The same profile name can be used in requestContext3D and requestContext3DMatchingProfiles methods of Stage3D.

AGAL 4 introduces a new opcode “tld” and new Vertex Sampler register “vs” for fetching texture in a vertex shader. ‘tld’ is similar to ‘tex’ opcode used in the fragment shader. But unlike ‘tex’ opcode, ‘tld’ requires a level of detail ( LOD ) value for parameter since GPU does not support the automatic calculation of LOD in the vertex shader.

Latest version of AGAL is available at https://github.com/adobe-flash/graphicscorelib/tree/master/src/com/adobe/utils

  • Vertex Texture Fetch

With the introduction of new Stage3D profile i.e. ‘ENHANCED’, Vertex Texture Fetch is now available in AIR mobile. Texture Data will be available in Vertex Shader using AGAL4 and Enhanced profile.

AGAL 4 introduces a new opcode “tld” and new Vertex Sampler register “vs” for fetching texture in the vertex shader. ‘tld’ is similar to ‘tex’ opcode
used in the fragment shader. But unlike ‘tex’ opcode, ‘tld’ requires a level of detail ( LOD ) value as a parameter since GPU does not support the automatic calculation of LOD in the vertex shader.
