Adobe AIR 1.0 and Flex 3.0 ready to roll
Also finished is Flex, Adobe's framework for professional Flash applications. Apparently as a reaction to Microsoft's Silverlight, Adobe has released the source code for Flex as open source. Adobe is making the Flex SDK available free of charge. Flex Builder 3 Standard costs €213, the Professional version €594. The SDK is available for Windows XP, Vista and 2000 and Mac OS X, the Standard and Professional versions for XP, Vista and Mac OS X only.
