Flex 4 and FlashBuilder 4 are available!

The brand new version of Flex and FlashBuilder are now available to the public. You can find more information here and download FlashBuilder 4, which comes packaged with the Flex 4 SDK, here.

The Flex 4 SDK provides a number of amazing features that provide even more flexibility and control for developers. If you are currently using Flex 3 components it is still a good idea to download the Flex 4 SDK and begin compiling your Flex 3 applications using the Flex 4 mxmlc compiler, which has also been improved. Using the compatibility-version feature of the Flex 4 compiler, your Flex 3 applications will not change in appearance.

Flex 3 and Flex 4 components can be used together, and many Flex 4 components provide a greatly improved experience for developers. Implementing custom skins and using states has never been easier, and a large number of other new features will really enhance your applications.

I’d encourage everyone to download FlashBuilder 4 and start using the Flex 4 SDK and feel free to post questions or comments here and I will answer them as quickly as possible.
