Director 11 To Ship In March
Adobe announced Director 11 at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. It will ship in March, with an upgrade price of $299 (from 8.5, MX and MX 2004) or a full price of $999. A $99 educational version will also be available. It updates the 3D engine to DirectX 9, and replaces the Havok Physics Xtra with a Ageia PhysX Xtra. There will be a new script browser, support for Flash 9, and unicode text support. It looks like there will be a whole new text engine included. We can expect this new version to be Intel native for Macs as well. You can already pre-order Director 11 on the Adobe Web site.
