Topic to be included:
Completely new SDK management and project setup makes it simple to switch Flex SDKs, or change the project type easily.
New Profiler will help you find memory leaks more quickly and optimize the performance of your Flash/Flex projects.
Choose from a list of available project templates in the “New Project Wizard” or easily create your own using a simple XML format.
Chain multiple launch configurations in any desired order to setup complex build processes fast and easy and adapt FDT to your project team workflow.
Additional Flex Support
Flex support was improved dramatically, it includes FXG, Flex 4 States and the new MXML 2009 language tags now. Also added Flex 4 support for the Debugger, Organize Imports, Quickfixes, Formatter and Toggle Comment in MXML.
View the dependencies between Classes and Interfaces or between packages visually to detect design or dependency problems at a glance.
Font Library Creator
Create font library SWF, Actionscript or SWC files with just a few clicks by using the new Font Library Editor.
More options in the AS3/MXML Formatter settings to configure your preferred code style or follow your team code guidelines.
Full and incremental build times have decreased tremendously while memory consumption was dramatically reduced, this is especially noticeable in bigger projects with multiple modules.
