Flash Update (7.2 / Ellipsis) is Available
The second update to Flash MX 2004 is now avaliable from macromedia.com. This brings Flash up to version 7.2, and focuses on a number of areas:
- Performance / Stability / Resource Usage
- Usability / Annoying Bugs
In total, over 120 bugs were fixed.
I have written an article that discusses Ellipsis, some of the issues that caused us to need to do two updates to Flash, as well as changes at Macromedia to help ensure we don’t make the same mistakes again.
What is the Significance of Ellipsis?
In addition, we have a bunch of new articles on the DevNet Center with information about Ellipsis:
- Flash MX 2004 Documentation : Responding to Users
- Using the new mx.utils.EventDelegate Class
- Skinning Flash MX 2004 Components
Note : Before you install Ellipsis, READ THE RELEASE NOTES. This will help ensure that you don’t run into any issues when updating.
You can also find a complete list of issues fixed in Ellipsis in the release notes.
You can find more information, as well as download Ellipsis from here.
I will be posting more through out the next couple of days with more information on Ellipsis.
