Flex 4 & Flash Builder 4 are Here!

By Rich Tretola | March 22, 2010

fb4Adobe has made it official. Adobe Flex 4 SDK is final and now available at the open source site. Adobe Flash Builder 4 is also now available. I highly suggest you get involved with Flex 4 as soon as possible as it will make your life much easier. Updates like the new state management, component skinning, and the Spark namespace are a welcomed addition. Flash Builder is a much improved tool. You will notice additional introspection of your code for code hinting, new data wizards for connecting to services including data paging, and new code generation that will help expedite your development process.

Adobe has also released Adobe Flash Platform Services Social service which allows developers to rapidly integrate applications created with Flash Builder and Adobe® Flash® Professional with social networks. This new service joins the existing Distribution and Collaboration Adobe Flash Platform Services. For detailed information, please go to

I have created a few posts over the past few months showing some of the differences between Flex 3 and Flex 4 that may be of use when you start working on Flex 4. Please let me know if there are any additional topics you would like to see covered in this series.

There is also a nice article posted here: Differences between Flex 3 and Flex 4 beta
