We’ll be holding an Open Iteration Meeting for iteration 12 (the last iteration) for Gumbo (Flex 4) on Wednesday March 24th. We invite you to join the Flex SDK team as we discuss the developments in this upcoming iteration.

The slides that will be presented will be posted in the Announcements section of the Open Source site at the end of this week. ARB issues and decisions, will be discussed briefly – you can see the updated list at the bottom of the Gumbo page.

UPDATE: Time previously said 6:15PM GMT, it will actually be at 5:15PM GMT

Flex SDK 3.3 Released

The latest official Flex SDK, now at version 3.3 has been released. You can download it from our main downloads page. We are not releasing a new version of Flex Builder, and therefore have made the updated Data Visualization components available from the same downloads page as well.

These releases are entirely bug fixes, along with the inclusion of the updated Flash Player and AIR bits.

You can see the SDK bug fixes here. The Data Visualization bug fixes are:

FLEXDMV-963: Complete chart area not used when day(s) are disabled
FLEXDMV-1882: Changing ColumnSeries itemRenderer at runtime doesn’t remove previous itemRenderer. All previous itemRenderers still get called.
FLEXDMV-1695: RTE for Chart display when using labels, 100% height and ViewStates.

The Flex SDK is also available from the Open Source site.

Edited 3/09/09:
Instructions for extracting the source for the data visualization components can be found in the release notes.

The workaround below is not necessary if you’ve downloaded since 3/07.

NOTE: If you are on a Mac and using AIR you may need to run the script found attached to the bug SDK-19707 as we screwed up the symlinks pointing to the runtimes. This will hopefully be fixed in the downloadable version in the next day or two.
