Flex SDK 4 & Flash Builder 4 Updates Now Available!

The Flex team is very excited to announce the release of Flex SDK 4.1 and Flash Builder 4.0.1 which are available for download today!  Flex SDK 4.1 is an update to Flex 4 and includes:

  • Support for mirroring layouts and text in order to support right-to-left- locales. The goal of this new feature is to trivialize the work involved to re-purpose Flex applications designed for left-to-right locales for deployment in right-to-left locales.
  • Native support for Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2.
  • Critical bugfixes and enhancement requests.

To support this new SDK, Flash Builder has shipped an update which lets developers target Flex SDK 4.1 (as well as support applications that target AIR 2). Additionally, the Flash Builder 4.0.1 update contains critical bugfixes. You can grab the Flash Builder 4.0.1 updater here.

Finally, be sure to check out newly shared information about the next release of the Flex SDK (code-named: Hero)!

  1. Hey Deepa


    I updated Flash to 10.1 and it’s crashing big time. Googled it and looks like hundreds of people are having the problem. I think you need to have the player team yank it back until you find out what’s going on.

  2. FYI, posting this here as I updated my Flash Builder and Player per your post.

    But there is something majorly wrong. And I figure you can reach the Flash Player team faster than I can.
