Flex 3 – Talks are on


Flex 3 ??????????

Yes, Flex 3 talks are on.

Ted Patrick has posted Flex 3 – The most important feature! today morning. According to the post Flex 3 will be targeted on Flash Player 9 which is very smart strategy of adobe to come out with the next release by that time expected flash player 9 penetration will be 90% (currently it is 60% according to Aral Balkan’s FlashForward Macworld Keynote).

Ted Patrick will give a demo on some Flex 3.0 features at the 360Flex keynote.

In my opinion Flash Player 9 must have been developed after putting the lot of thought as Flex 3, 4, 5 releases will be targeting Flash Player 9 and may be currently Flash Player 9 is having all (hidden) capabilities which are targeted for Flex 3, 4, 5.

Well, I am very excited to see more features of Flex 3 but have to wait till 360Flex keynote.
