2008 Alchemy Turns C/C++ Into Flash Gold
As announced in the MAX keynote this morning, Alchemy is a project that allows users to compile C and C++ code to run on the ActionScript Virtual Machine. With Alchemy, developers can now reuse hundreds of millions of lines of existing open source C and C++ client or server-side code on the Flash Platform. The C or C++ code is compiled to ActionScript as a SWF or SWC that runs on Flash Player 10 or AIR 1.5. And Alchemy is available now on Adobe Labs.

More details to follow, but, visit Labs to request access to both Bolt and Centaur. Oh, and yes, the name "Bolt" pays homage to the original ColdFusion lightning bolt.
