The Launch of Flex 2 And Beyond

Flex 2 is out. You can download Flex here. The pricing is the same as many had "guessed" in the past few days. I'm very excited about the pricing model that Flex is going with even if it means that, as a SDK team member, I no longer work on a product that makes money!

I had a sabbatical set up long ago and ended up missing some of the end game of development. When I got back to work, things were quiet. Too quiet. There were fire drills and small fires, but none of the explosions I've seen in the past. That's a great sign for all for a release involving five products, three development offices, and no choice but high quality (as the player team is a bit of a stickler on this).

So what is the development team up to now? Many of us are taking time off, nursing our wounds, and having some beers. We're also starting side projects, looking at those bug queues (or rather management is), and working on the things that were put on the back burner. I've heard of a couple of interesting projects happening on the compiler and data service teams. So enjoy the Flex 2 and Flash Player 9, but we're not done yet...
