The boxed version of Director 8 Shockwave Studio from Macromedia has started shipping. Mac users will notice immediately that their current versions of the Shockwave player (7.0.3) won't play their content. So Macromedia has included a link to the latest version 8 beta player on the Director 8 installation CD. You can download the beta at http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/?P1_Prod_Version=SW8Preview. The full release version of Shockwave Player 8 is expected March 27, according to Macromedia. The beta player does not yet support animated GIFs within Shockwave movies.
The full version of Director 8 Shockwave Studio includes Director 8, Shockwave Multi-User Server, Fireworks 3 and BIAS Peak LE 2.1. Director 8 is optimized for the Macintosh G4's Velocity Engine.
