Adobe has released today Flash Media Server 3.

FMS 3 is available in 3 editions:

  1. Flash Media Streaming Server ($995)
  2. Flash Media Interactive Server ($4500)
  3. Flash Media Development Server (free, 10 simultaneous connections limit)

You can find a side by side comparison of the 3 editions here but the most important new features from my opinion are:

  1. Limitations on bandwidth and connections limit have been lifted
  2. More secure content delivery (rtmpe, swf hashing)
  3. H.264 video and HE-AAC audio
  4. Audio/Video stream delivery to Flash Lite 3
  5. Major improvements in performance
  6. AMF3 support and new plugin arhitecture

AVChat and AVConference should work without any issues with FMS3 as a media server should you choose to use it.
