Adobe is expected to stop Shockwave next month

Adobe will withdraw from the Shockwave market next month as part of a long-term plan that will also include the disappearance of other products.

Adobe

In a technical support document published in late February, Adobe explains that while Shockwave will stop running on 9 April 2019, businesses will continue to receive support under their contracts.

The company explains that the dropout of Shockwave is the result of the shrinking of the existing user base, especially because the majority of customers are switching to alternatives.

"As technologies evolve and mobile use has increased, interactive content has moved to platforms such as HTML5 Canvas and Web GL and Shockwave usage has been reduced," he says.

The decision to withdraw the Shockwave from the market is not a big surprise, and Adobe explains that it has already shut down the technologies in the past.

"Adobe has issued a warning to help customers prepare for the change. Stopping Shockwave for Windows is the final step of a multi-year process: Adobe Director, a Shockwave content creation tool, stopped running 1 in February 2017, and Shockwave for macOS stopped 1 in March 2017, "notes Adobe.

What is important to know is that the Shockwave will not just disappear one day. Although Adobe itself set the retirement term, Shockwave will continue to live for a while longer and the platform will continue to work on the devices that were installed.

However, the official download links will stop running, so it will not be possible to install Shockwave on new computers. Naturally, third party sources will still host installers, although sooner or later, everyone will just have to move from Shockwave to alternative products that still receive support.

In addition to Shockwave, Adobe is also preparing to stop its release Flash Player next year.
