Flex is doing good!

Apache Flex SDK 4.10 was released in August, and there have already been more than 7500 installations of 4.10 within two months since its release. Of course this SDK is supported by IntelliJ IDEA.

Nevertheless, according to the feedback we get, many Flex developers still stick to the older Adobe Flex SDK versions, and here’s what we’d like tell them: come on, update to the latest SDK already!

Develop with pleasure!
