Apache Flex 4.10 Released!

The Apache Flex project, the all-volunteer group of developers, and stakeholders in the development framework, today announced the release of Apache Flex 4.10.0. This release makes some important improvements over previous versions of Apache Flex and Adobe Flex.

“We are seeing interest in the Flex development framework increase rapidly. There have been more than a half a million page views in the past 6 months, more than 9000 downloads of the Flex SDK in the past 3 months, and around 130,000 unique visitors to the flex.apache.org website. Since the initial release of Apache Flex at the end of 2012, the interest in the project has grown steadily,” said OmPrakash Muppirala, committer and member of the Apache Flex PMC.

Apache Flex 4.10.0 highlights include:

  • Support for latest versions of Flash Player and AIR runtimes. At the same time, we have made it easier for developers wanting to take advantage of the latest advances in the Flash runtimes by letting them choose the versions during installation.

  • Improved support for older Flash Player versions. Enterprise environments have more stringent requirement in terms of upgrading Flash Player versions.

  • The new spark components ensure that SDK users can build functionalities quickly and in a more performant way. The need for handling these components in two different architecture styles (mx vs. spark) will be eliminated.

  • “Out of the box” support for Advanced Telemetry allowing developers to easily profile their application and improve performance using Adobe Scout.

  • Better localization for multiple languages. Flex 4.10.0 is better now when trying to make application for multiple countries and languages.

  • Better international support for dates in formatters, validators, and the DateField and DateChooser components.

  • Better for developer productivity - less Run Time Errors (RTEs) and workarounds required in 4.10.0

  • 480 dpi mobile resolution/skin support means that Flex SDK users can now target high

What Color Is This? from Nico Troia:

I’d like to share with you an app I built using Flash, Robotlegs, Starling and FeathersUI.

It was built primarily to learn the platform and to create a simple mobile framework for myself. The app is called What Color Is This? and it utilizes CameraRoll and CameraUI to load pictures, count pixels, and display a name result!

Source code is available online on Github.

Leverage Typekit Web and Desktop Fonts within Animate CC

Adobe Animate CC allows the use of Typekit fonts in an assortment of project types; animations, rich ads, mobile apps, web interactives, and more. Typekit is flexible, in that certain fonts are useable only on the web as live web fonts – while other fonts can be used both on the web and as installed desktop fonts. If you have a standard Creative Cloud subscription, this includes access to the Typekit service.


Fresh Player Plugin Sees New Release (Pepper Flash Wrapper For Firefox)

As you probably know, the latest Adobe Flash Player is available on Linux only via Google Chrome (it’s bundled with it) while other browsers such as Firefox are stuck with an old 11.2 version.

The Adobe Flash Player plugin that’s bundled with Google Chrome is in the form of a PPAPI (or Pepper Plugin API) plugin and Mozilla isn’t interested in adding support for it. Because of this, Rinat Ibragimov has developed Fresh Player Plugin, a wrapper that allows Linux users to use Pepper Flash from Google Chrome in Firefox and other NPAPI-compatible browsers.

Lua for Flash
