FDT 3.5

Finally installed FDT 3.5 yesterday. I don’t write Flex Apps, so the MXML support is nice to see but doesn’t really affect me. I noticed a lot more templates, and today I was pleased to see that the quick fix to rename a class also automatically renames the constructor if it is present. It always annoyed me that this wasn’t the default behavior in FDT 3.2.

I also recommend the three-part online training course on FDT by Alan Klement. More details here. Alan’s blog is also a great resource for FDT tips and also general Flash development topics.
