What do you think about this?
The coming months, I intend to completely remove the use Flash technology in its working process (for panoramic publishing).

Still to many smart phones and tablet devices and many more browsers that do not use HTML5.

I think it is to soon to drop flash.

Answer is to create panoramas that will use Flash and/or HTML5 content. Then let the device decide which content to use.

There are still a few things Flash can do which HTML5 can't… but when we get Pano2VR 4.5 with multi-res, I think the writing will be on the wall for Flash unless it's specifically needed for a job. I will not miss it much…

Yes you are right ... There are some "bells, whistles", and other features in Flash, that motivate of customers "squeal with delight" .
But now I clearly understand, that finally come - one uniform standard that will end the long chain of formats and technologies - java-applets - QTVR - Flash (and a lot of other little hobbits etc.)

*cross dissolve transition and blurring image preview for HTML5.... and you can live and work comfortably :D
