Public betas of Flex Builder 4 and Flex Catalyst 4 are out

This is great news. The most valuable new feature for enterprise developers are data-centric code generator and network monitor. Flash I’m glad that Adobe picks up the best ideas from third-party libraries and components and implements them in Flash Builder. It’s a win-win situation for the Flex community.

Flash Catalyst will become the main prototyping tool for all Flex UI designers. Need to analyze the generated code to form an opinion about its effect on the productivity of Flex developers.

Overall, I’m pleased with these releases. My writeup about them is here: http://flex.sys-con.com/node/982740.
