This news is arrived on Adobe’s official Blog on Nov 30. According to them this new Adobe Animate looks like updated version of Adobe Flash but this program logically focuses on HTML5. This new program is going hit on January 2016.

From other news, this new Adobe Animate looks so good and unlikely Adobe Flash content web browser will actually support the content made by Adobe Animate. In the meantime you can disable Flash if you like to.
