Adobe stopped development of its mobile Flash. So with the desktop environment shrinking its a waste of time.

developing for the flash player itself, yes. For iOS and others, no, it's raging in that regard. A number of top grossing games in the app store was developed in the flash IDE.

I have not had time enough to get up to speed the many differences now in the IDE yet, besides reading and checking out the new methods and practices for developing for a different path. I keep meaning to since I have a very expert strong background in the IDE. Will be interesting to see how it fares in the next few years as they continue transitioning it away from the flash player export altogether. I think the only work there, is ads.

Flash is Dead. Or not. Well, it has a new name...

Adobe Flash Is Now Called Animate. But It's Still a Mess.

The platform that was until yesterday known as Adobe Flash Professional CC is now Adobe Animate CC. What does that mean? According to an Adobe statement announcing the change, it’s part of an ongoing commitment to “evolve to support multiple standards,” specifically HTML5. In practice, though, the answer is: not much. Meet the new Flash, same as the old Flash, and still a security-addled, closed-off mess.

The good news, at least, is Adobe seems to acknowledge the inevitability of an HTML5 world. A simple rebranding, though, doesn’t do much to get us there.

Tumult took advantage of the announcement to preview v. 3.5 of Hype.

FWIW on Snow Leopard. Flash is still showing itself to be up to date, app is set to never update and version agrees with the last version I installed.

The security issues are with the Flash player not the development environment itself. This is where Adobe needs to gets it's head of it's butt - Changes coming with Animate are nice, well if they work and it isn't a convoluted mess as Adobe is prone to creating.

However it's all going to be moot if Adobe can't get a handle on Flash player/security and deployment issues.

Learning Flash/AS is still very much a viable career enhancement, I'm not sure though if I'd want to make it a core skill set. I've been using it since it was a plugin for Director way back when but I use it in conjunction with other things, video editing, AF work etc.... It's a complimentary thing and I personally don't see Animate going away anytime soon.

I don't know how much effort I would put into Flash today. Sure, there are still jobs out there, but realistically, anything done in Flash has to be duplicated for HTML5 delivery. Eventually, someone's going to ask why they're paying for both.

I think you'd be better off investing your efforts into becoming awesome with more modern technologies.
