Adobe opens up RTMP protocol

Adobe will open the Real-Time Message Protocol (RTMP). RTMP is the protocol used in LiveCycle Data Services or Flash Media Server for streaming data or audio/video. Why is this important for you? Because, from now on other companies or developers can build products using this protocol (and they don’t have to reverse-engineer it :D), and as a result Flex developers will have more options to choose from – a healthy competition. For example, after the AMF protocol was opened last year, ZendAMF (the Remoting solution for PHP from Zend) appeared.

You can read the announcement here, and Ryan Stewart will have a post with more details on the same topic has a post on this topic.
