Adobe made a handful of announcements early this morning:
- A new Open Source portal
- Flex 3 is ready and final. Flex Builder 3, which you’ll want if you are serious about building Flex applications, is US$249.
- Adobe AIR is released
The Flex team’s blog announcement has more details and a lot of links to get you started.
Is it just me, or are none of the demo applications very compelling?
The biggest change from "yesterday" is that it might be easier today to write a cross-platform application — as long as AIR/Flex supports what you want to do outside of the browser. I’d like Adobe to offer the "Express" edition of Flex Builder so I can build things for free, just like Microsoft does with Visual Studio.
Are you excited about this "AIR"? (Or Flex?)
