Adobe Director 11

I havn’t seen it announced anywhere, but I checked today and it appears to be up for sale, and the trial is for download as well.

The other Interactive media tool Macromedia owned.
It supports native 3d, and is more virtual environment oriented. This latest release is aimed more at game development.
It’s extentable with Xtra’s developed in C++ via a SDK, and can make standalone exe’s natively.

Major new features:

-DirectX 9 support
-Ageia PhysX support
-Vista and Intel Mac Support
-Code Snippets
