gProject Acquired By Adobe!

We’ve been getting lots of questions about why gProject has not been updated to support ActionScript 3. Until now I have not been in a position to respond appropriately, but today I’m happy to announce that Adobe acquired gProject late last year. Since then, we have been working with the Flash team to completely overhaul the panel for AS3, add new functionality, and significantly improve the interface.

As a result of the Adobe acquisition, we will no longer be developing gProject and have deprioritized our support for gProject as a product.

We will continue to offer gProject for Flash 8 and CS3 for the immediate future, but it will not be updated further. The product page for gProject and panel pack will be updated immediately to reflect this.

If you purchased gProject in the past 3 months, and have any concerns, please contact us through our support form.

  1. Great news! I can’t wait to see what becomes of it.

  2. Congrats to you and your team. Very exciting news.

  3. That’s great news! If Adobe acquired you, then they must be one step closer to acquiring me! (Any day now, the Flash snake on my homepage will be the biggest rave.)

  4. Awesome! Was that products site always there? First time I’ve seen it. There’s some handy code in there. You should add it to the navigation at the top of your blog.

  5. Big contracts! Keep up the great work.

  6. This is great news! I look forward to the free CS3 upgrade… RIGHT? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Congrats Grant and everyone else who’s put effort into this nice little application. It’s great to see Adobe showing this type of support/integration with the Flash community!

  9. Any chance they might acquire gModeler as well? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been waiting for Saffron or some other good Flash-centric UML tool that supports AS3 to be released and have yet to find one. gModeler is a really fantastic app I’d love to see an update for. I’ve even pay for it!

  10. Congratulations Grant ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Chris, Regarding Gmodeler:

    You should check about Sparx System Enterprise Architect 7.1 (improved as3 engineering compared to 7.0), there’s also Enterprise Architect MDG Eclipse integration plugin to go further with sync between model and code in Eclipse projects. They are currently working on further integration of Flex.

    It is an amazing product, that supports code engineering (forward and backward). I’ve been using it for months, I think it should be part of every Flash/Flex developer toolbox.

    It is free to test for 30 days and easy to setup. Please beware that you should use the professional edition at least to use code engineering features.

    Best regards.

  11. congrats Grant!! that’s awesome news. nice work. let’s have a celebratory pint next we find ourselves in the same area code!

  12. Ah, the memories. That was one of my last acts as Flash Product Manager. I’m so glad to see it finally wrap up so we can release it to our customers.

    And to clarify based on one of the comments, no, we did not acquire Grant’s company – just gProject. It’s too cold in Edmonton for an Adobe office. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Is there any new news on the Adobe version of gProject? Will there be an extension or do we have to wait until Flash CS4?
