Flex 3.0

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

A couple of weeks after the release of Flex 2.01, and Adobe are opening talking about the next planned release of Flex, Flex 3.0.

Ted has a post here and you can register your interst to join an advisory panel here.

To sum up what Ted says the main subject is that Flex 3.0 will be targeted at Flash Player 9.

I tend to agree this is a good idea. This will mean that the player penetration will be high and it won’t be a factor on companies taking the decision to use Flex.

Ted is also demoing some of the new features at the 360Flex keynote. Can’t wait to see on the blogs what they’re up to!

Flex 2.01 and Flex for OSX

Friday, January 5th, 2007

The new release bring with it:

1. Runtime CSS – apply CSS styling on the fly (was only applied at compile time).

2. Modules – modules are a brand new feature that allow applications to be broken down into chunks and loaded at runtime. See the ModuleManager.

3. Apollo ready.

4. OSX – the offcial OSX release!

5. Faster compile times.

6. FlashType – embed fonts will now use FlashType by default, no need for Flash.

Flex 2.01 application will run in the current Flash Player (I believe it requires runs in Flash Player, which is newish).
