Adobe decided to kill the Flash Distributable Player

Announced during the last Adobe eSeminar (recording here: >0:28:10) by Mark Doherty, Adobe decided to stop the Flash Distributable Player and focus its effort on Flash 10.x.

=> No more Adobe Mobile Packager to package mobile application.

Reasons: Adobe reorg (600 people in 12/2008) and 680 people fired in 11/2009 and “long term” technology vision.

As a reminder, the Distributable Player was created as a system to allow end users to download on-the-fly the latest Flash Player adapted to their devices … including the upcoming Flash 10.x

What about all the partners and the whole developer community who trust on Adobe? Nokia seems a little bit alone now with their Flash Lite presinstalled players and their s40 and s60 packaging offer.
