New Flash player 9,0,45 & Flex patch

If you’re a Flex 2 developer you should download the newly released Flash player 9.0.r45 debug version.

source link Once installed the new player remember to apply also this patch to Flex builder 2, otherwise it will throw you an error every time debugging an app (expecially if you’re using Firefox).
This patch also does the following:

click “This patch allows the Flex SDK and Flex Builder to use SWFs and SWCs created by Flash CS3 Professional. After applying the patch you should be able to take classes and symbols compiled with Flash CS3 Professional and compile them into a Flex application. You should also be able to take classes and libraries compiled with Flex and use them in a Flash CS3 Professional project.

In addition, this patch allows the Flex debugger (fdb) to function correctly with Flash Player 9 (9.0.45.0) in the Mozilla browser.”

Firefox first victim

It seems incredible but the first victim of the cannibal Firefox (25 millions of downloads) it’s Mozilla itself!
In fact, even if already released some beta version of Mozilla 1.8, there will be no more a 1.8 final release anymore.
The unexpected success of Firefox shifts the development focus from the integrated Mozilla Application Suite to the new generation of applications — the Mozilla Firefox browser and the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client.
BTW, support and developement over current Mozilla versions will still continue.

Mozilla announces beta release of XFORMS 1.0

http://topmarketsoft.com/product/graphisoft-archicad-20/ The Mozilla Foundation today announced the beta release of the W3C’s XForms 1.0 Recommendation. XForms is the forms module standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which enables developers to deliver the type of next-generation, rich, portable web-based applications desired by corporate IT.

http://www.kstechnologybd.com/persuasive-essay-for-sale/ What is XForms? XForms tries to address some of the limitations with the current HTML forms model.
It is event handling based. XForms brings to the table is the separation of data from presentation, strong data typing, the ability to submit XML data to servers instead of name/value pairs, and a descriptive way to author forms so that they can be displayed by a wide variety of devices Download

FireFox 1.0 is here!

Finally after a long period being in developement, Firefox 1.0 was announced!
It’s a long time this is my default and only browser… I cannot imagine to surf the internet without it actually.
I want to say I have nothing against Microsoft, but the comparison between Internet Explorer and Firefox it’s really embarrassing.
