Free FDT 1.5 Update, with Eclipse 3.2 support

with 4 comments

I was just trying to find more information if FDT was supported on Eclipse 3.2 ( I basically live in Eclipse, together with Flash and Outlook ) and just found the team at Powerflasher announced a new shiny free 1.5 update yesterday!

Hi all,

thaaaaaank you for your patience. Its time again for some official words!

We know that it is a shame to take so much time for new releases. After months of development and weeks for updates with on time feature requests we had a stable and voluminous release with that everyone was happy. Month’s later there is no new major release – sorry for that. But be sure, we’re still working on it. Of course we do – we are 20 flash developers here at POWERFLASHER (and 10 more freelancers) and need it daily. The last months we just implemented things we need and some cool requests from you guys. Everyone can participate on the open beta to get the newest official version.

Now since Eclipse 3.2, the MAC issues and AS3 it is really time for a new version! And here it comes… We´ve hired a new FDT-Only-Developer to support Nico, Lars and the rest, we’ve bought some MACs (and using it ;)) and we´ll invest new resources in the forum. Please welcome “Arne FDT” 🙂 a genius java-developer.

In October you´ll get a free update to version 1.5 with:

  • Eclipse 3.2 support
  • MAC help update improved
  • Better UTF-8 Support
  • New: Project- and workspace wide reference search
  • New: Mark occurrence in the editor area
  • New: ass kick´in external Flashplayer with real helpful features and ANT support (windows only for the first step)
  • New: classpath editor (imports projectclasspaths to the Flash IDE)
  • And of course bugfixes and small other improved things

We hope that makes you happy again and it makes the time shorter till the AS3 version. Uh yes what about that? We´d tried to release this year but the pre-release with 1.5 took time from it. So it will be Q1/07, maybe a beta in end of the year. It is really hard work to implement multiply languages.

Summary: We will release in a couple days the 1.5 as free minorupdate with rock´in new features and in Q1 next year the AS3 version.

  3. It’s in the new help, they include a new exe that can launch your SWF with additional parameters ( flashvars ). Useful if you compile from within Ant 🙂
