Macromedia has released the Flash Communication Server MX and they already have up an impressive development center for the server. This new server from Macromedia sports multiway audio and video streaming and messaging, making it ideal to be in the center of collaboration systems and multimedia delivery. Macromedia has only released it for Windows so far, but there are versions for Linux and Sun in the lineup.
We have some screenshots up at Flashmagazine.com of the development part of the communication server, and there will be more articles made available about the server later today.
It seems to me by the launch of the new MX products from Macromedia that the merger with Allaire really did Macromedia and Allaire good – I am impressed by the amount of information they are making available about their products.
Before I forget it, you can read more about the Flash Communication Server on a number of other sites too:
Mike Chambers has some really good resource links. Expect him to post more useful pointers and information about the Flash Communication Server MX.
