Macromedia has released a new version of its Shockwave Player software. The new version, 8.5, is ready for download and installation from Macromedia's Web site.
Shockwave Player works as a plug-in with popular Web browser applications, and enables users to use interactive content on the Web. The software installer also includes Macromedia Flash Player.
Shockwave Player 8.5 has been released to provide compatibility with content produced using Macromedia's recently released Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio.
