Few days ago, Adobe has launched the Flash Player 11 which is a milestone for the product as the new Stage3D API that allows up to 1,000 times faster rendering compared to Flash Player 10.

It focuses on the 3D content and the widely-used 2D content won't be getting the advantages of this new feature.

Starling Framework

Starling Framework, a pure ActionScript 3 library, aims to fill this gap by rendering all content through GPU.

The framework has a familiar API which makes it very easy to use for Flash developers. Even the live-Flash-websites can be improved with it just by exchanging the native Flash classes with their Starling equivalents.

    The content is encrypted with a public key and it can only be decrypted with that key (which makes sense if the recipient already has that information).

    Cryptico.js doesn't require any JS frameworks to function and it is well-documented.

    ChocolateChip-UI is a mobile web app development framework that targets WebKit engines..

    The framework provides fully functional widgets and controls right out of the box which know how to behave so you can focus only on providing the data.

    ChocolateChip-UI

    A new concept is introduced by the framework: WAML (Web App Markup Language) which is designed for creating mobile web apps and uses special tags + attributes to clearly define all the parts (rather than divs and spans) for a faster development.

    ChocolateChip-UI has most of the elements we get used from iOS like the buttons, tab bar, lists, slider and more.

    The framework is very well-documented, provides snippets for the basics and definitely a must-bookmark for mobile web app development.
