On page 85

Do you know about the upcoming Cairngorm 3 's new features ?
Is there an upgrade planned for the MEAP chapter 3 ?

Best regards.

Re: Details on Cairngorm and a question about Cairngorm 3
I'm going to be updating chapters 1-6 when I do the revision to update the book to Flex 4. So, at that time I'll look at Cairngorm 3...

Thanks,
Peter

Re: Details on Cairngorm and a question about Cairngorm 3
I just rewrote the book to using Flash Builder 4 and Flex 4. The MEAP will be released next week.

I didn't update Cairngorm though, since I wanted to use the standard Cairngorm.

By the way, here's the summary message from a different post about the upcoming MEAP release...

Hi all,

I know it's been a *very* long time, but Hello! Flex 4 is now complete--and almost completely rewritten. I've been really bad and totally stayed off of Author Online while I was doing this, since the rewrite was a total format change and took a brutal amount of work. So, sorry about not being responsive.

The old Twitter example from chapters 2-6 is now compressed into chapter 7 only.
Chapter 1 is half new, and chapters 2-6 are completely new. Chapters 1-6 now contain 26 self-contained workshop items, which include everything from small one-page examples, to a 3D rotating haiku to a Connect Four game. I hope you like the book!

The MEAP will be released sometime next week.

Thanks for your patience,
Peter
