Here’s a sneak peek in what you will see and hear on that day:
- Gumbo – “Gumbo” is the codename for the next generation of Adobe® Flex®, including both the next generation of Flex Builder™ and the next generation of the opensource Flex SDK. Gumbo delivers a long list of new features and improvements to existing features in three main themes: design and development, IDE productivity, and data-centric application development. Get to see Gumbo at work and talk to the engineers who built them…
- BlazeDS .NET – The .NET version of the Adobe BlazeDS open-source product
- Flex™ plug-in for Microsoft® Visual Studio®
- Flash Catalyst (earlier codenamed Thermo) – Adobe® Flash® Catalyst is a new professional interaction design tool for rapidly creating application interfaces and interactive content out of a designer’s wire frames.
As you create your project in design view, Flash Catalyst is representing the design as well-formed MXML code behind the scenes. Share your project with “Gumbo”, the next generation of Adobe Flex® Builder™, to add logic and back-end connectivity. Move the project between Flash Catalyst and Gumbo while preserving design and code integrity

- Astro – Adobe® Flash® Player 10, code-named “Astro,” introduces new expressive features and visual performance improvements that allow interactive designers and developers to build the richest and most immersive Web experiences. These include features like:
- Advanced Text Layout – A new, highly flexible text layout engine, that enables innovation in creating new text controls by providing low-level access to text offering right-to-left and vertical text layout, plus support for typographic elements like ligatures.
- Custom Filters and Effects – Creating portable filters, blend modes, and fills using Adobe Pixel Bender™, the same technology used for many After Effects CS3 filters.
