Flex 4.5 and FashBuilder 4.5 Released!
The Flex 4.5 SDK, FlashBuilder 4.5 and Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 (along with Flash Catalyst) are now available for download!
The major enhancement to Flex 4.5 is the ability to export ActionScript-only based projects to iOS and Blackberry and Flex applications to Android. This update does not include the ability to port Flex apps to iOS or the Blackberry Playbook quite yet (that update is coming in June).
New features released in this version of Flex include:
• Spark DataGrid
• Spark Form
• Spark Image and BitmapImage enhancements
• Spark Formatters
• Spark Validators
• Video and text enhancements
• Reduced memory consumption for full builds
• Reduced compilation time for full and incremental builds
• Improving the compiler’s RSL linking logic
I’m excited for this release and I’m excited for the next update to Flex coming in June. So excited that I’m actually considering buying an iPad (!)…something I honestly never though I would do but after getting numerous complaints of the inability to visit Xuland on the iPad, I determined its high-time I created Android and Apple app versions as soon as possible.
Congrats Adobe on another big win!
