FlaCC (C/C++ to Flash Compiler)

More news on the C/C++ to Flash compiler, now called FlaCC. With this tool developed by Scott Petersen at Adobe would allow almost any arbitrary C/C++ code to be compiled down to ActionScript bytecode to run on the Flash player. I first heard of this at MAX 2007 and there will be a session at MAX 2008 on this (plus hints it will be in keynotes).

While we wait here are a few links to some more recent news:
The MAX 2008 Session is "Using C++ Libraries in Flash Player and Adobe AIR" Monday, November 17, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm. I'm looking forward to that session.
