This Week in FlexExamples.com (11/11)

Another week, another blog.flexexamples.com update! This week was fairly heavily weighted towards working with the charting components (PieChart and PieSeries specifically). Head on over and check some of them out:

This Week in FlexExamples.com (11/04)

A collection of posts over at blog.flexexamples.com for the past week.

As you can see, there were a couple posts on using the FileReference class, as well as several posts on using and customizing the PieChart control.

Updated Flash Player 9 Beta for Macintosh posted on Adobe Labs

I just saw this over on the Adobe Labs blog, Flash Player 9 Update Release Candidate for Mac Refresh Now Available.

If you are running a previous version of Flash Player on the Macintosh, I recommend downloading the latest version of Flash Player (9.0.98.0) from Adobe Labs. If you haven’t tried the latest beta of Flash Player on Windows, Macintosh, or Linux, head on over to Labs and take a look. The latest version of Flash Player, codenamed “Moviestar”, includes a lot of great things, including this snippet which I’ll copy-paste to save typing:

Support for H.264 video and HE-AAC audio codecs.
Multi-core support for vector rendering.
Full screen mode with hardware scaling.
Flash Player cache for common platform components, such as the Flex framework.
Support for Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) in the Windows plug-in.
