Adobe Ending Support of Flash
Regarding the email sent out earlier this week (see below):
We have moved on to Storyline 3 and 360, and publish everything new in those versions. We have also upgraded old Storyline 2 projects to Storyline 3 and republished. Everything that we have online on our LMS is currently taking exported in Storyline 3 and advantage of HTML5.
We do however have lots of old projects built in previous versions of Storyline that are not currently being used, and have not been upgraded to 3 yet as a result. Once support for SL1 and SL2 is dropped, will we still be able to open/upgrade these old projects to SL3 if needed, or will those old SL2 projects be unusable?
"As you may have heard, Adobe is ending its support of Adobe Flash at the end of this year.
Storyline 1, Storyline 2, and Studio ‘13 all rely on Adobe Flash to operate. As a result, we must sadly end support for these applications when Adobe discontinues its support of Adobe Flash on December 31, 2020. While you can use these applications even after Adobe ends its support of Adobe Flash, we don’t recommend it. Once Adobe stops patching Adobe Flash with security updates, computers with Flash installed will be vulnerable to security issues.
We wanted to give you plenty of notice so that you can prepare. Any projects you previously published to Flash will need to be republished to HTML5 before December 30, 2020, to continue working."
