Just before the general session on day two, we got to all play an interactive game on the main screen.
The general session on the second day took on a secret service lab theme:
New SFG format, a common file format between tools
New SFP format – generated by Catalyst and consumed by Flex Builder (or visa versa)
Alchemy – converts C/C++ code to ActionScript
DVDs were provided to attendees that contained preview versions of Catalyst and Flex Builder 4
Cold Fusion Bolt – plug in to eclipse like flex builder – has ORM generation capability
FB4 - Map UI to data services without coding. Mapping of update operations.
You can now right click on a control and select a generate event handler option
New network monitor
You can apply themes across a project
VS plugin for flex (3rd party)
Modified flash player that interacts with virtual users (e.g., Google)
Flash media server 3.5 – dynamic streaming between clients
Flash media live encoder (???)
Groups.adobe.com – new website for finding/starting user groups
They announced that Max 2009 would be held in Los Angeles on October 4th through 7th.
