Our first-generation Documoto products use Adobe Flex which relies on Adobe Flash Player to run in your browser.
In 2017, Adobe announced they will end-of-life Flash over the next three years stating: “Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player on December 31, 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.”
Additionally, web browser makers Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla and have announced their plans for Flash support over the coming years ranging from saving the user's Flash choice for sites, to asking for permission to run Flash, to blocking Flash completely.
Since 2015, Documoto has been working towards the removal of Flex from Documoto. Over the past three years we have stopped developing new features in Flex are focused on developing those features, including Order Management and our Rocket User Interface (UI), in HTML5. We are now transitioning all our first-generation products to sustainment (support and bug fixes, with a few additional features) and focusing our engineering team on building our next-generation Documoto product.
Our new product will be built exclusively in HTML5 and will eliminate all dependencies on browser plug-ins. We will share more information with our existing customer base regarding the new product as it becomes available.
