New Flex Gumbo Architecture Review Board (ARB) Issues posted: Dropping the Fx Prefix

For those few people out there that were not fans of the Fx prefix in Flex Gumbo (SDK-17854Kittens saved, Fx prefix will go away), you can now head on over to the Flex Gumbo page on opensource.adobe.com and check out the Architecture Review Board (ARB) Issues page on Dropping the Fx Prefix!

And for those of you who were fans of the Fx prefix… you can go read the ARB issues page too, because the Fx prefix is still being removed.

Adobe Flash Player 9.0.159.0 available on adobe.com

Last week I blogged that we had released a new version of Flash Player 10 (“Adobe Flash Player 10.0.22.87 available on adobe.com”), but apparently I missed the fact that we also released an updated version of Flash Player 9 (9.0.159.0)!

There goes the Internets, Peter is on Twitter

A few days ago, I finally decided to set up a Twitter account (twitter.com/pdehaan) to track my posts on my various blogs. So now whenever I post on FlexExamples.com, ActionScriptExamples.com, or AIRExamples.com, my twitter account will be automatically updated).

So feel free to head on over to my Twitter page and follow me (or whatever you do on Twitter.

Oh, and in case anybody else was curious… YES, all my *Examples.com blogs are down. It appears that MediaTemple is having a little meltdown.

New Flex Gumbo Architecture Review Board (ARB) Issues posted: Group Scale Grid

Just a heads up, today we posted the “Group Scale Grid” ARB notes on the Gumbo page at opensource.adobe.com. Curious about what Group Scale Grid means? Me too!

The support for scale-9 resizing is confused between Flex SDK, FXG, and the CS tools, and needs to be resolved.

Flex current supports scale-9 only on embedded bitmaps, as it did in Flex 3. When a bitmap is embedded with scale-9 parameters, those parameters will be respected, regardless of whether the embedded asset is used as a display object inside a UIComponent, the source for an Image, or the source for a BitmapGraphic.

In case you missed the previous ARB notes, check out my earlier post, “Flex Gumbo Architecture Review Board (ARB) Issues posted to opensource.adobe.com site”, or hit up the Flex Gumbo page on the opensource.adobe.com site.
