Flash Pro is now called Adobe Animate, and it continues to be developed. New features are being added to ActionScript, and SWF is being improved. SWF can be used in AIR applications, using the desktop Flash Player application, standalone projectors, or in a browser plugin. It's the browser plugin that will not be developed after the end of 2020. SWF itself is still being worked on beyond that.

Adobe Animate does also publish to HTML5 Canvas and other formats, so you have nearly three years to get used to those features too.

If history has told us, Animate CC (formerly Flash) is here to stay for a while longer. As a content creation tools it is continually being improved and new features are being added. I've been using it since Flash 3 was around 1999. Flash helped give me a career in animation I otherwise probably wouldn't have had for the last couple of decades. It's now 2018 and I see new improved features that I can't talk about because I'm on the prerelease team and that would break NDA. Just know that it's here to stay and the Animate engineering team is full dedicated and connected to its user base in terms of how we use the application and where we'd love to see it go.
