 ||| Flash MX 2004 - Flash News, Tutorials and Reviews |||
The ActionScript that you've been writing in Flash 5 and Flash MX is now referred to as ActionScript 1.0.
ActionScript 2.0 is a new feature included in both Flash MX 2004 and Flash MX Professional 2004, and in most respects it is very much the same language as ActionScript 1.0.
ActionScript 1.0 tends to lend itself to poor programming practices…and to mistakes of assigning incorrect data types to variables.

 Adobe Labs - Flash Professional 9 ActionScript 3.0 Preview
ActionScript 3.0 and the new ActionScript Virtual Machine introduced with Flash Player 9 are among the most significant advances in the history of Flash.
ActionScript 3.0 is a new version of the standards-based language used to access the Flash Player APIs and implement client-side logic for Flash and Flex applications.
ActionScript 3.0 introduces several new language features that increase developer productivity and simplify maintenance of applications, including the ability to use strong typing, native E4X support, and a new Display List API that makes it easier for developers to structure and control user interfaces.

 A Beginner's Look At ActionScript > What is ActionScript   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
ActionScript 2.0 supports all the standard elements of the ActionScript language; it lets you write scripts that more closely adhere to standards used in other object-oriented languages, such as Java.
ActionScript 2.0 should be of interest primarily to intermediate or advanced Flash developers who are building applications that require the implementation of classes and subclasses.
Scripts that use ActionScript 2.0 to define classes or interfaces must be stored as external script files, with a single class defined in each script; that is, classes and interfaces cannot be defined in the Actions panel.

 Comparison \ Processing 1.0 (BETA)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
ActionScript is based on JavaScript and Processing is built on Java, so there are many similarities between these two languages.
ActionScript is very slow making calculations and Processing is therefore much better for applications containing large numbers of elements.
ActionScript was developed for vector drawing and therefore ignores the possibility of directly manipulating pixels.
