From Adobe this morning:
"Flex 3 and AIR are getting close to launch and in preparation, the Adobe
Platform Evangelist team is traveling to select cities to show off the
great new features and some brand new demos.
Flex 3 is a feature-packed release, adding new UI components like the
advanced datagrid and improved CSS capabilities; powerful tooling
additions like refactoring; and extensive testing tools including memory
and performance profiling, plus the addition of the automated testing
framework to Flex Builder.
Adobe AIR is game-changing in so many ways, extending rich applications
to the desktop, enabling access to the local file system, system tray,
notifications and much more. Now you can write desktop applications
using the same skills that you've been already using to create great web
apps including both Flex and AJAX.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to see and hear about this highly
anticipated release of Flex 3 and AIR during this special pre-release
tour. Plus, in addition to giving away some one of a kind Flex/AIR
branded schwag, we will also be raffling off a copy of Flex Builder 3
Professional (pending availability) and a full commercial copy of CS3
Web Premium at this event!
Check out the comprehensive listing of dates at flex.org/tour to see if
the tour is coming to your city! "
