Adobe Flash Builder 4 and Flex 4 Now Available

We're happy to report that last week, Adobe released new versions of Flash Builder software (previously Adobe® Flex® Builder™) and the open source Flex framework. Flash Builder 4 and Flex 4 are now available for download and purchase.
Adobe Flash® Builder™ 4 enables developers to rapidly build applications with the Flex framework, introspect services, and use a simple drag-and-drop approach to bind specific methods to UI components. Developers can use the new Network Monitor to see precisely what data their application is sending and receiving, import functional UI elements created by designers using Adobe Flash Catalyst™ software, and bind services to UI components. Flash Builder 4 also simplifies complex development, so tasks such as synchronizing data throughout the application and paging large record sets are easier than ever.
Along with the new version of the Flex framework and Flash Builder, Adobe released a new beta of the next version of Flash Player—Flash Player 10.1. Flash Player 10.1 will be the first version to run on desktops and mobile devices, so as we get closer to launch, Adobe will continue to make improvements to performance.
This month's newsletter features tons of content related to the release of Flex 4 and Flash Builder 4, and David Tucker's RIAs that Rock column has some great Adobe AIR® features that help developers build Adobe AIR applications. Let us know what you've built on the Flash Platform—we always like to hear from you. E-mail us at
Happy coding!
