Sure. Illumination is cool. It lets you build cross platform applications (utilizing Python and GTK) that run on just about every computer and device on the planet.
And you can do so from the comfort of your Linux or Windows desktop… in a completely visual way. (Heck, most of the people using it have never programed software in their life!)
But let’s kick it up a notch, shall we?
As of today, Illumination Software Creator 2.0 is available. And it is awesome.
For two big reasons:
1. Adobe Flash / Flex
That’s right. From that same project file that you’ve already been working on, you can now build an Adobe Flash powered rich website. With a single click.
Built a cool puzzle game and want to share it with the world? Just click the build menu item and presto — you’ve got a Flash based puzzle game… complete with a snippet of HTML to drop into your blog. Easy as pie.
2. MacOS X
For those of you using MacOS X… we didn’t want you to feel left out of the party.
So now Illumination runs great on MacOS X as well as Linux and Windows.
Think that through for a second.
A tool for creating software. That doesn’t require that you write any code. Is 100% visual and can be picked up and used by anyone…
That runs on Linux. On Windows. On MacOS X.
And builds software for Flash powered websites, every type of desktop operating system we can think of and nokia internet tablets.
That. Is. Cool.
To go along with all that goodness, we’ve revamped RadicalBreeze.com to have a nice new look and easier navigation.
And, of course, this brand new version is a free upgrade to each and every Illumination user.
Haven’t purchased Illumination yet? Now’s a good time!
