In addition to new beta builds of Flash Player 9, Flex Builder 2, and Flex 2, we have also posted updated versions of the open source ActionScript 3 libraries to labs.
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
A lot of people have had questions about whether you can use the Flex 2 Framework classes / controls (everything in mx.*) within an ActionScript 3 project without using any MXML.
You can definitely do this, and we have posted some info on the labs wiki that shows how (written by Gordon Smith).
You can view the info here.
You can download Flex Builder 2 and ActionScript from labs.macromedia.com.
Colin Moock has updated his ActionScript 2 ImageView sample to ActionScript 3, and has posted a detailed article on the migration process on Macromedia Labs.
