These libraries include a number of changes:

  • Updated to work with beta 3
  • Some API renaming (mostly in corelibs : com.adobe.utils)
  • Removed some redundant APIs (mostly in com.adobe.utils)
  • Fixed bug where events where not being documented in docs


In regards to removing some APIs. We removed a couple of APIs that had equivalent APIs in the Player of Flex Framework. So, if you can’t find an API you were using, just check the Player and Framework docs.The libraries include:
