    Default Announcing Director/Shockwave Player 10.1 Update

    Developers,
    Today Macromedia announces a comprehensive update to both Macromedia Director
    and the Shockwave Player. This update includes a wide variety of changes to
    both the authoring environment and the player, including but not limited to:


    - dozens of bug fixes across the product, including the doentation

    - the ability to create projectors for the Classic Macintosh operating
    systems from Windows

    - a new, "slim" Shockwave Player installer resulting in a download
    size nearly 2MB smaller than before, this includes changes to the
    Shockwave Player's Xtras auto-downloading mechanism to ensure that
    existing content continues to function correctly

    Note: we are also providing full installers (these contain all
    Xtras)in both executable form and in CAB file form (for
    ActiveX auto-installs)

    - reduced number of dialogs during the Shockwave Player installation
    process for all Windows users and a redesigned installation
    completion movie


    As of today, September 16th, we are only providing updated installers for
    Macromedia Director (in all languages). Within the next week, the Shockwave
    Player installers available from the Player Download Center and as part of the
    free-licensing program for distributing on fixed-media or in corporate intranet
    environments, will be updated to this latest release.

    installer please visit the following URL:

    In addition we will soon be posting more information about how the changes to
    the default set of Xtras in Shockwave will affect developers (they don't!) and
    information about how developers can direct users to the full-install
    experience if desired. Please look for these in the coming days in the Director
    Support Center at [url]http://www.macromedia.com/support/director[/url].


    Thanks,
    The Director Team
