InfoWorld: Interview: Macromedia CEO discusses upcoming Royale tool: May 08, 2003: By John Blau: Applications "Burgess: Royale is a new product still under development. It's essentially Flash for programmers. Currently, the Flash authoring tool is widely used by creative people. It has a visual interface, allowing these people to draw, move things around and do all this in a time-line. This interface is something that is very natural for an artist. If you're a hardcore programmer, you really want a tool to use in a server environment, especially as content merges with logic in next-generation applications, like the Watergate Hotel application I mentioned earlier. To put it another way, programmers aren't visual; they want code. We hope to deliver Royale later this year."
