Ted Patrick enlightens us again to the upcoming Flex 3 release with today's sneak peek. He describes a fantastic feature of the new Flash Player 9 where the Framework libraries for Flex can be cached in the player. What this means for us is deploying unbelievably small applications - footprint wise - without having to embed the Framework in our swf's! Very cool.
"Flex 3 and 'FrogStar', codename release of Flash Player 9, adds support for caching the Flex Framework within the Flash Player. This feature is nothing short of a revolution for Flex applications deployed to Flash Player. Moving forward the Flex Framework will be cached within the Flash Player dramatically reducing the size of the output SWF files."
