Adobe retires Shockwave on 9 April 2019

Adobe intends to discontinue Shockwave, one program based s for interactive games and applications. His retirement will take place on April 9, 2019.


Adobe will remove Shockwave Player downloads for Windows from its websites and servers on the Internet. The main reason is the rise of alternative technologies that have now supplanted Shockwave. The company notes that its Enterprise customers will continue to receive for Adobe Shockwave until their contracts expire.

As technologies have evolved and the use of mobile devices has increased, interactive content has moved to such as HTML5 Canvas and Web GL and the use of Shockwave has decreased.

Το Shοckwave ήταν μια , ένα παλιό format, για εργασίες που βασίζονται σε CD-ROM ή και ως μορφή βίντεο παιχνιδιών που οι δημιουργοί τους δημοσίευσαν σε ιστότοπους με games, σε απευθείας σύνδεση. Οι προγραμματιστές χρησιμοποιούσαν το Adobe Director για να δημιουργήσουν περιεχόμενο Shοckwave. Το περιεχόμενο θα μπορούσε να προβληθεί σε οποιοδήποτε συμβατό πρόγραμμα περιήγησης στο Web, υπό την προϋπόθεση ότι έχει εγκατασταθεί στο πρόγραμμα περιήγησης το plugin Adobe Shockwave player. Όσοι από τους αναγνώστες ασχολούνται πάνω από 10 χρόνια με το διαδίκτυο και τους υπολογιστές ασφαλώς θα θυμούνται αυτήν την παλιά πλατφόρμα ως ένα είδος “βίντεο”.

The rise of Adobe Flash sidelined Shockwave due to having features that were not supported by Shockwave. Adobe discontinued Adobe Director and Adobe Shockwave Player for Mac OS as early as 2017. THE Shockwave Player for Windows is the latest version of Shockwave supported by Adobe. Its retirement in April 2019 ends support for all versions.
