What is Actionscript?

Actionscript is the language of Macromedia, or now Adobe, Flash. It was created in 1999 by Macromedia for Flash 4. The first version of Actionscript lasted for six years from 1999 until 2004. In 2005, when Flash 8 was released, Macromedia introduced Actionscript 2. This is the most commonly used Actionscript to date. In 2007, when Adobe bought Macromedia, Adobe created Flash CS3 (Flash 9) for their Creative Suite products. Flash CS3 introduced Actionscript 3, a more complicated cleanup of Actionscript 2.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
