Zinc 2.5 Supports Synchronous Communication

Zinc 2.5 was recently released by Multidmedia. It includes full compatibility with all the new features of Flash Player 8. In my opinion, Zinc is already the best EXE wrapper for Flash on the desktop. And with this upgrade its gotten even better.

Flash Player 8 has a new feature called External Interface. This allows Zinc to offer a new feature they call {mdm}Script 2.0. The biggest improvement this feature brings is synchronous communication with the wrapper. With the old fscommand method, every call to the wrapper was asynchronous. This would cause developers to write 3-4 times as much code to do the same thing. This is a huge improvement for developers using wrapper applications like Zinc to create Flash on the Desktop.
