Subject Re: Flash Builder 4.7 Beta with Apache Flex 4.8 support
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2012 14:53:37 GMT
One thing to consider... by NOT including the Design View, it could
potentially open up Flash Builder to more easily being ported to other
platforms, such as Linux. If I remember correctly from previous
discussions, the Design View was a major part of the difficulty in
doing any sort of port previously because of the way in which it
required an embedded custom Flash Player instance that was not
compatible with Linux.
