"Adobe has released Flash Player 11.2 and has decided it’s high time the once-ubiquitous browser plug-in started earning the company a bit of money. Starting Aug. 1, 2012, Adobe will begin taking a 9 percent cut of game developers’ net revenue over $50,000."

Which should create an even faster demise for Flash, providing a big motivation for successful Flash game developers to move to Javascript.

This is kinda stupid, just compile it with flash 11, and get around that. Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave right now.

I wonder if Adobe is just taking the chance of experimenting with new business models knowing that they can't drive more of a stake through Flash then has already been done. It looks from afar that Adobe is jealous of Apple's deal with its developers to get a percentage or profits.
