Macromedia announces FLEX 1.5

Macromedia yesterday announced Macromedia Flex 1.5, the newest version of Flex. Below are some of the new features Flex 1.5 will offer.

  • Developers can create more effective data visualization and data interactivity using dynamic, animated, and interactive charts and graphs and a new, more capable datagrid.
  • An expanded set of component styles empowers developers to quickly make a broader range of look and feel adjustments, while easier skinning allows infinite control over the look and feel of the application.
  • Flex 1.5 includes new support for Oracle Application Server 10g, IBM AIX, and Fujitsu Interstage 6 on the server side, while on the client side developers can deploy their applications to the browser.
  • Runtime shared libraries and faster application startup time can mean dramatically faster application downloads and performance.

Am Back!!

Was back last week from the vacation but just didn't had time or the energy to blog. Reason?? Well, ongoing holiday mood, end of quarter deliverables, some projects to be closed among a few.

Anyway, am all set now and will be blogging more frequently.
