Update on the Adobe TextLayout Framework

The TextLayout Framework API has had quite a few changes since it was released on Adobe Labs last November. And the documentation is being updated, as well, to reflect these changes. While these changes are still in progress, the TextLayout Framework overview has been updated and incorporated into the “Working with Text” chapter of Programming ActionScript 3.0. You can find instructions on how to access and review a PDF of that chapter on Francis Cheng’s blog.

The API reference is availabe as part of the Flex Gumbo API Documentation, which accepts comments. Look for the flashx.textLayout.* packages

We’d love to get any feedback you might have.

If you’d like to see what people are doing with the TextLayout Framework, check out the New York Times Reader 2.0 application, which is built with Adobe AIR.
