PW 5 Killing PW 8

pw 8 version is 8.00.120331

pw5 version is 5.00.091221

Before posting I read through some old threads about the Hor.Fov and some others on stitching failures with PW Blender compared to Smart Blender. While I have taken the time to read about these bugs I just cant figure out why an old (PW5) stitcher is killing a new (up to date PW8) stitcher?

I like the little planet intro in PW8, it's cool, it's catchy and clients dig it. However, I've found my way to the end of my rope stitching with an outdated PW5, Saving Image, Importing Image into PW8, Saving and Publishing to have the file not render correctly for the chosen outputs.

I understand that rending is a separate issue all together. But it's imperative the tour render across all browsers and devices. When choosing the output of Merge Flash VR, HTML5. I figured to see the tour on my Android device in Flash. I was surprised that there was no music playing and it rendered the HTML5 file? It renders in Safari but rotates counter clock wise with no music? Chrome spits out "safari only" while the remaining browsers seem to render it properly.

On my Android device I went to Play and selected the installed Flash Player App. Says it's Flash 11 and includes compatibility with Android 4. In the Description area it states;
"Configurations. Flash Player Will Not Be Supported On Any Android Version Beyond Android 4.0x"

With Adobe Edge and all things pointing to HTML5 why continue spitting out Flash files that don't even render? It's about mobility and mobile devices are where our attention should be focused.

I've covered obviously more than one topic here but these are basic features of a very pricy piece of software that should work, right?
