Now that our dev manager, Heidi, is back from maternity leave, I should have a bit more time to keep my blog going. Sorry for the low output over the last several months. It was a bit hectic here as we all scrambled to cover for her absence.
What were we working on? Well, we were mostly busy getting the 2.0.1 release out the door. This includes support for the mac, support for Eclipse 3.2, as well as tons of bugfixes. We also worked on the Japanese release, and we have been working with the Apollo team on making Flex Builder a great dev environment for Apollo (although none of this is publicly available yet). Finally, we have been getting a jump start on some 3.0 features (which are also not publicly available yet).
While I was away from the blog world, I did some thinking about what I wanted to blog about when I come back. I’ll continue to blog about technical aspects of Flex, but I think I’ll also spend some time focusing on general aspects of user interface design. What makes a great RIA? How will RIAs of the future be different than web apps of today? What makes for a bad RIA?
It’s good to be back.
