Flex 2.0 Beta available … now with separate Flash Player 8.5 installer download

When we initially launched Labs and the Flex 2.0 alpha, a good bit of the not-as-positive feedback about the release centered on the fact that the player could only be installed if you downloaded the entire tool package. With the Beta release, you can now download and install Flash Player 8.5 alpha 3 separately … and then go check out the sample apps in the showcase gallery.
