Subject Re: IDE upgrade options
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2014 07:42:55 GMT
I have used FB since 3 I am on 4.6 and still used visual layout 1 or 2 times a day I could
live with out it

I have run  IntelliJ IDEA on trial 2 times now and it is a quality product but there is a
learning curve in my cases about 4 weeks

I think I will go cold turkey with my new project and move to  IntelliJ IDEA unless is see
a 4.8 from Adobe, otherwise it looks like FB is a legacy product ie dead no new £ to be spent
on it, adobe just milk the base which they are entitled to do

Did you find 4.6 with sdk 4.12 an easy install and setup ?
