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,

Re: New MEAP coming next week!
Update: for some reason Manning delayed releasing it. It should be out tomorrow.

Re: Flex 3 version Posted on MEAP?
What's up with this MEAP? I downloaded the free Getting Started Chapter and it is Hello FLex 3. I am afraid to get the MEAP as it might be the Flex 3 book.

Re: Flex 3 version Posted on MEAP?
Hmm. I'm not sure what was wrong with the Getting Started chapter; my guess is they probably forgot to update it. I have the MEAP PDF on my hard drive (it went out yesterday), and it's definitely Flex 4 smilie

I'll get my editor to regenerate the Getting Started chapter...
