Macromedia today released an updater for the Macintosh version of Flash 5. The new version, Flash 5.0a, fixes a number of bugs that were causing Flash to crash on the Mac. These include situations such as leaving the Sound Panel open, exporting complex animations, exporting to animated GIF, dragging and dropping frames to the timeline and nudging objects with the arrow keys.

The announcement of the new update came at the FlashForward2001 conference going on right now in San Francisco. The conference lasts through Wednesday.

Flash 5.0a is available as a free download at http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flash/updates/5.0a/mac/Flash5.0a.sea.hqx. For more information, visit http://www.macromedia.com.
