We’re very happy to announce that a major update to the GestureWorks framework for Flash and Flex will be available on December 9th on the GestureWorks website. As a thank you to everyone who has purchased GesturesWorks 1.0 (and 1.5 , 1.6), we have decided to make the 2.0 upgrade complimentary! We really appreciate the support.
This release will be coming less than a month after our initial release of Open Exhibits software (which is the educational counterpart to GestureWorks) which will happen November 15th. GestureWorks 2.0 will be fully compatible with Open Exhibits modules, templates, and exhibits. The onscreen keyboard, Google Maps module, Flickr module, YouTube module, and CollectionViewer Template will be freely available and open to all GestureWorks users.
Along with support for modules and templates, we’ve made major advances in gesture support. While we are still working out the final details, GestureWorks 2.0 will support hundreds of gestures, making it the most advanced multitouch framework in the world. We will be making more announcements as we get closer to the release date.
