Flash Builder beta serial number extension site is now live

According to the Flex Team Blog, the Flash Builder 4 beta extension serial numbers are now available for all Flex Builder 3 customers through http://www.adobe.com/go/flashbuilderextension.

Nightly Flex 4 Language Reference ZIPs now available

For those “hardcore” Flex-thusiasts out there, this may very well make your day!
If you routinely download the latest Flex 4 Nightly SDK builds from http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Download+Flex+4, you’ll be pleased to know that you can now download the language reference for the very same build!

Oh no you didn’t!
OH YES, WE DID!!!1!

You can still browse the Flex 4 Language Reference at http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/gumbo/langref/, as well as the user docs at http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/gumbo/html/, but if you want to see the latest and greatest version of the language reference (with all the latest API changes — http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Rename+List, I’m looking at YOU!), head over to http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Download+Flex+4 and download the Language Reference ZIP.

Yay!

BluePrint Flash Builder code example plugin available on Adobe Labs

[via The Blueprint Eclipse plug-in is live on Adobe Labs (for Flex Builder 3 and Flash Builder 4) on the Flex Doc Team blog]

So, “What is Blueprint”, you may be asking yourself:

Blueprint is a plugin for Adobe Flex Builder 3 and Adobe Flash Builder 4 that allows users to query for Adobe Flex and Adobe Flash code examples found on the Web directly inside of the development environment. The purpose of this preview is to assess the level of community interest in this type of customized search interface for code examples.

Very cool indeed! For more information, check out the Flex Doc Team blog’s entry over at http://blogs.adobe.com/flexdoc/2009/06/the_blueprint_eclipse_plugin_i.html, or download Blueprint directly from Adobe Labs at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/blueprint/.
