Great news that you are looking to get Goalscape moved over to HTML5 from flash, will this be before Dec 2020? If not how will the current version be protected?
I have a number of collaborative Goalscapes live currently containing a lot of data, whilst I'm backing the online work up and can use the desktop version Im concerned that this info will be lost when you switch. Will data from the flash version be able to be imported into HTML. Also when the BETA version is ready and can I get access, please.
BTW - Great tool , what's going to be new in HTML5?

    Hello Steve

    Thanks for your inquiry – and for the great feedback.

    Yes – we are flat out on developing Goalscape 3.0, using html5, Javascript and the latest web technologies. We already have a working prototype and we will let you know when a beta version is available.

    Flash only affects the client software running in the browser. Your data is secure on our servers, so when we release the new version it will access the same project data. As you say, you can also do your own backups by downloading your Online projects as .gsp files and storing them locally (or in a cloud archive).

    We already have a new 'captive runtime' version of Goalscape Desktop that is independent of the local AIR environment. We will release that well before the end of the year (it will though require separate downloads for Windows and Mac computers).

    All the best – and stay safe
