Zinc 2.5 Now Supports Flex 2 / AS3 / FP9

Well, I’ve been using Zinc for quite some time now so I know it pretty well and I’m very keen to give the new version a test run and see that any old bugs have been quashed forever, so here’s a thank you to MDM for the free copy. 🙂

Zinc 2.5 now supports Flash 9 (which includes AS3 and Flex 2 apps), I’m yet to look into how this is implemented, but with 2.5 we saw the commands becoming synchronous, which was a big relief from the asynchronous commands we had in all the swf wrappers a little while back. Also bundled for the first time is an SWC, this should also mean intrinsics for all of the classes (previously intrinsics were downloadable seperately and were a lone effort by one of the team in the forum), this should ultimately keep FDT/Flex Builder 2 happy.

  1. I never used Zinc before, I had always used Flash Jester’s Jugglor for all my application/Cd-Rom projects. But all those features in Zinc look pretty enticing. Thanks for the post.

  2. Great, more features to an already buggie piece of software. I’ll guess this new release will also tripple the number of patches being release for Zinc…
