Flex 3: Four new features
The Flex team demoed four new features in the upcoming Flex 3:-
- A profiler for memory usage and performance.
- More language intelligence, especially including refactoring. Apparently refactoring support was the number one requested feature, which I find interesting,
- New data visualisation tools; richer styling and graphics support for charts, and a new advanced data grid with hierarchical elements, sorting, filtering, etc.
- Support for framework caching; the framework for your app can go into the Flash player cache on the client side, making subsequent loads faster. It wasn’t clear what distinguishes frameworkable elements from the rest of your app, though.
