Smile Adobe shutting off flash

Is it true that adobe is shutting off flash and introducing a new software called animation in its place?

One of mine graphic designer friend was telling me about this. How much of this is true?

According to this article: Adobe to kill off Flash in January’s Creative Cloud update It has been in the works for over a year.
Quote:
...Adobe's embrace of HTML5 has created its first big casualty: Flash. Not the Flash Player browser plugin—Adobe said in 2012 that it would continue supporting the plugin for the next five to 10 years—but Flash Professional, the main authoring tool used to create Flash animations.

With the Creative Cloud update coming in January, Flash Professional will sport a new name: Adobe Animate CC. It will still be able to produce Flash (SWF) files and will also continue to support Adobe's standalone AIR runtime, but it also supports building for HTML5 Canvas and WebGL. Adobe says that a third of all content produced in Flash Professional is now HTML5-based, showing that the shift away from its proprietary browser technology is well underway. Flash Professional isn't just for Flash; it's for all kinds of timeline-based interactive animations. The name change makes sense...

So it's just undergoing a name change. They should also cut out the ability to make flash animations. In a HTML5 world, people shouldn't be making flash content anyway!

They've just released Flash Player 26, so I guess the answer is no.

Browser flash play really sucks, they should shut it down, or at least work on an optimization. Frequent updates are also annoying.
