This is a huge move for the industry. Adobe will release specifications and relinquish the licensing fees/restrictions for their Flash based formats. This move allows anyone to write and show content in this format with ease (if you understand the code). Adobe is not releasing their player or writing software, just the formats.


The Open Screen Project is working to enable a consistent runtime environment – taking advantage of Adobe Flash Player and, in the future, Adobe AIR -- that will remove barriers for developers and designers as they publish content and applications across desktops and consumer devices, including phones, mobile internet devices (MIDs), and set top boxes. The Open Screen Project will address potential technology fragmentation by allowing the runtime technology to be updated seamlessly over the air on mobile devices. The consistent runtime environment will provide optimal performance across a variety of operating systems and devices, and ultimately provide the best experience to consumers.
