Macromedia Flash MX

Flash MX is set to ship on March 15.

Flash MX is being marketed for its improved workflow abilities and for accessibility features including alternate text for graphics and the ability to be used by screen readers through support of Microsoft Active Accessibility. Flash will also support the use of named anchors, allowing users to use browser back and forward buttons (if the flash Movie is created with achors) and bookmarking.

One of the new features is a set of pre-built form components including scrollbars, rich text fields, input buttons, radio buttons, check boxes and list and combo boxes. I'm sure somebody will be able to make the argument for doing prototypes in Flash now that these components are available.
