Flex 2.0 beta 2 now available

Flex 2.0 beta 2 is now available at labs.adobe.com.


  • The API has been scrubbed for consistency. A lot of names have been changed, but in a fairly straightforward way.
  • The new contraint syntax is in place (yes!)
  • You can now choose a subdirectory within your project to place your source files
  • You can use the [Bindable] metadata on getters and setters
  • You can initialize inherited properties through MXML tags with the id attribute. (this is usually used to support a “code behind” idiom)
  • Many, many bugs fixed, of course.

All the gory details are available at http://labs.macromedia.com/wiki/index.php/Flex:Beta_1_to_Beta_2_Changes

    The ability to choose a subdirectory for source is a great improvement for team workflow. Thanks!

    Hi Sho,

    Yeah, I agree that the subdirectory feature was very needed and was the first thing that was strange for me :)

    Glad we were able to get that feature into the product. Let us know if you have any issues with how it works!
