Flex Builder 2 for Mac
Adobe on Tuesday began shipping Flex Builder 2 for Macintosh, an extension of its powerful toolset for designing and deploying rich Internet applications. The software helps developers and designers build interactive Web applications that "combine the benefits of desktop software with the reach of the Web." With the free license version of the Flex 2 SDK, developers can build and deploy complete rich Internet applications with no software licensing costs. Flex Builder 2, a powerful Eclipse based integrated development environment (IDE), combines powerful ActionScript and MXML editors, a visual UI designer, and integrated debugging, to help developers build applications faster. Flex Builder 2 for the Macintosh and the Flex Builder 2 Eclipse Plug-in for the Macintosh are available as trial versions or for $500 or $750 (with charting). The Mac OS X version of Flex is a Universal Binary that runs on Mac OS X 10.4.7 (1.25GHz G4 PowerPC or Intel-based Mac).
