Adobe have made available the BETA release of the Flex 4 SDK (previously codenamed Gumbo). There are 3 major themes and changes to Flex 4 and this release. They are:
- Design in Mind: providing a framework for continuous collaboration between designer and developer
- Developer Productivity: improving compiler performance and adding productivity enhancements to language features
- Framework Evolution: taking advantage of new Flash Player capabilities and adding features required by common use-cases
Flex Builder has also changed name and is now known as Adobe Flash Builder. For an overview of the new features, please read Matt Chotin’s What’s new in the Flex 4 SDK beta article.. Also for any Flex developers looking to move from Flex 3 to 4, there is a nice article by Joan Lafferty on the differences between Flex 3 and Flex 4.
If anybody has some Flex 4 compiled application examples, then please feel free to post the link's here for all to view.
