Director 11

After some doubts as to whether Director would ever see a new version, Adobe announced Director 11 (making it another non CS product, among other things). This is mainly a compatibility upgrade (new Flash functionality, support for Intel Macs, switch to Aegia physics from Havok, etc.) with the next version rumored to be a major upgrade.

Good news for Director developers, and it's also interesting to consider what might be in store if Adobe manages to unify its rather too many IDEs, languages, and target platforms without making the Flash plugin too bloated.
