Default What is actionscript 3.0?

I know this has probably been asked, and I tried searching it but seemed like 3.0 wasn't getting searched, just "actionscript" was.

So I've seen this in a few places, randomly. What does it mean? Is there something I can buy/download to add actionscript 3.0 to my flash 8?

Same thing with Flash PLayer 9? Do I need to do something to make my flash 8 swfs work with Flash Player 9?

Just curious,

AS 3.0 is the next improved version of the actionscript language, currently in development. There is a public preview version available to developers and developers with time on their hands (I wish!) have been experimenting with it. It adds some excellent new classes as well as improving the existing classes. I'm particularly looking forward to the way xml is managed & controlled.

Just to be clear, AS 3 itself is in Release state... You can already publish production ready AS 3 code with the Flex 2 SDK or Flex Builder 2 and it will run in the flash 9 player. Its just that the development of the Flash IDE is now out of synch with the Flash platform.

Coming from a PHP/PERL world, actionscript is very strange, but fun.
