DevNet Resource Kit
Mike Chambers did a sneak peek of a couple of apps that will be available on DRK Volume 3. The first one is RSSify which lets you produce RSS feeds on a server (Flash and ColdFusion). The second one is called News Aggregator, which is a Flash client that consumes RSS feeds. Good combination. Very cool stuff. DRK Volume 3 will be available in about 3 weeks to DevNet Professional and Devnet Essential subscribers.

Royale
Meet “Royale” (codename), a new way to generate Flash user interfaces using XML. Neil Balthaser did a demo from the office of a credit card form that automatically does validation which he build with just a few lines of XML. More on Macromedia Royale to come.
