As of yesterday Adobe has renamed their Flash product to Animate
At the time of writing this I didn't do any extensive searching but a quick search for Flash on GD.SE returns 420 results. We also have adobe-flash which currently has 84 questions in it (seems we're not very good at tagging things).
While Flash has never been a significant portion of our questions it will arise, perhaps even more if more people revisit it in its new form as Animate. The product launches in January, so we've got time to discuss and decide on what to do. It isn't clear from what I've read how long Adobe Flash will still exist within the CC realm, that initial press release simply states,
Note: When the release becomes available in January, it will be listed as “Adobe Animate CC” in the Creative Cloud desktop application. When you install or update Animate CC, it will be found on your computer as Adobe Animate CC 2015, not Adobe Flash CC 2015.
Previous versions of Flash Professional prior to January 2016 will continue to be available.
Which means it might no longer receive updates but still exist for a long time as Flash, while only new installs will be completely lacking in Flash.
How should we proceed?
