Adobe released last week FMS 3.5 and FMLE 3.0 which you can now download and/or purchase. There are several interesting new features which you can read about here: New features in Flash Media Live Encoder 3.0 New features in FMSS 3.5 and FMIS 3.5 Prices remain unchanged with $4500 for FMIS and $995 for FMSS. Because this is not a new major version upgrade prices are rather cheap with $349 for the FMIS 3.0 to 3.5 upgrade and $249 ofr the FMSS 3.0 to 3.5 upgrade. These prices are available in the US store. The FMLE continues to be free.

Adobe has released today Flash Media Server 3. FMS 3 is available in 3 editions: Flash Media Streaming Server ($995) Flash Media Interactive Server ($4500) 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: Limitations on bandwidth and connections limit have been lifted More secure content delivery (rtmpe, swf hashing) H.264 video and HE-AAC audio Audio/Video stream delivery to Flash Lite 3 Major improvements in performance 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.
