Macromedia has released two Flash software developers kits (SDK) at the Flashforward 2000 conference in San Francisco.

The SDKs allow third-party developers to add Flash export to authoring applications and Flash playback to platforms and devices.

The Flash Player SDK provides a version of the C++ source code of the player, as well as documentation to help developers port the player to any platform or device.

The new Macromedia Flash file format SDK details the file format, provides new export code and includes improved documentation.

The Flashforward 2000 conference began yesterday, with keynotes from Macromedia CEO Rob Burgess, CTO Kevin Lynch, and Apple's director of QuickTime Product Marketing and QuickTime TV Frank Casanova.

The Webcast of the keynotes can be watched on Apple's QuickTime TV site.
