Text Layout and Media Frameworks are now open sourced

Yes, the much discussed about TextLayout and Media frameworks is on Adobe Open Source now http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/tlf/Text+Layout+Framework 
I am really delighted to see the TextLayout framework which is intended to reduce the complexities with the usage of text that we have now.It has several rich features which will enable the usage of text in Rich Internet Applications like never before and it is also included in Flex 4.. Gr8 🙂 . One of the features that I found interesting is the ability to use text in bi direction, vertical text and also there are 30 writing scripts in different languages including Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam….
This demo from Adobe should give you a better understanding of the power of the new text engine that is built on Flash player 10.I am yet to look into the Media framework which provides features that will enable developers to create a unique playback experience….
