Kevin Towes, Flash Media Server product manager, announced the availability of Stratus 2 today. If you are interested in the details of Flash Player 10.1 P2P, I would strongly recommend to watch Matthew Kaufman’s presentation on Adobe TV.

“Today, we released Stratus 2 RTMFP introduction service with full support RTMFP Groups. With this updated service, developers can start exploring a full set of Peer Assisted Networking functionality within Flash player 10.1 and AIR 2.0.

You can access your Developer key and more details here.

Adobe® Stratus 2 enables peer assisted networking using the Real Time Media Flow Protocol (RTMFP) within the Adobe Flash® Platform. RTMFP is the evolution of media delivery and real time communication over the Internet enabling peers on the network to assist in delivery. Stratus was first introduced in 2008 as a rendezvous-only service that allowed clients to send data from client to client without passing through a server. Adobe Flash Player 10, which debuted peer assisted networking, has been adopted today by over 90% of all internet connected PCs.

We have some new articles in the works, and sample applications coming soon, but you can start using the new service right now.

For support, you can use the Adobe Stratus forums here.”
