Flex SDK 3.4 Released and Security Update

Flex SDK version 3.4, the latest production quality release, has been released. You can download it from the Flex Open Source page. We are not releasing a new version of Flex Builder. However, the SDK 3.4 version will work in Flex Builder using the multi-sdk feature. You may want to postpone updating if you’re using the Data Visualization components, they will be available in about a week when SDK 3.4 is posted on the Adobe.com site.

This release supports the security updated runtimes for Flash Player 10 and AIR 1.5. Additionally, it includes key bug fixes in the SDK, one of which addresses a critical security bug (more below), and bug fixes provided by the community.

An important vulnerability has been identified in Flex SDK 3.3 and earlier versions. This vulnerability could result in cross-site scripting. We recommend all users of Flex SDK 3.3 and earlier versions update to the newest version, Flex SDK 3.4. Please refer to this security bulletin for further information.

You can find the SDK bugs that were fixed in Flex SDK 3.4 here.

    where is the data visualization zip for 3.4?Or can I use the 3.5 version with my 3.4 sdk?

    Also how do you expect people to notice that behaviour of core classes have changed without a proper change log? You changed the HTTPService ResultEvent and broke my code (event.target no longer points to HTTPService instance, but to another class that have only private access to the HTTPService instance, again, another hack to deal with Flex issues). You want people to update to new SDK because of security fixes but then they have to deal with “Surprise! Surprise!” changes.Clearly Adobe still doesn’t have a clue they’re dealing with developers also, not only designers.

    Where’s the detailed changelog? The link you provided at the end of the article points to a page with no issues.Why not make a small txt file with all the changes made and put it on an easy to access place inside the SDK package?How on earth can I be certain that all the hacks I had to implement to make Flex useable will work with new SDK if you don’t provide this info?continue…

    We’ve updated the release notes to reflect known issues. I’m not aware of issues like what you mention though, if you can provide reproducible issues please file them at http://bugs.adobe.com/flex

  5. Mauricio Pacheco says:

    It seems that the design view issues are because my component library has some problem with it in 3.4…Design mode: Cannot load hpf.swc (reason: ERROR: Load Verify). It may require classes (such as Adobe AIR components) that are not supported by design mode. Check the Eclipse error log for more details.

  6. Mauricio Pacheco says:

    Is there any known issue with this new SDK? I am seeing some now like “mx:Image” not showing in design view, sometimes I see “focus” errors, “sortCompareFunction” not always working, etc. All these were OK in 3.0.2.

  7. And the Flex 3 Language Reference has been updated to 3.4: http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/langref/index.html
