FlashDevelop 3.0 Beta

Yes this has been the weekend of Flash technology...

I've been messing with ActionScript 3 today as I read through Essential ActionScript 3.0 and Programming Flex 2. Being one to be easily distracted by shiny objects, I found a shiny object. FlashDevelop 3.0 is in beta and it works pretty nicely. I'd messed with FlashDevelop 2.0 but hadn't used it in quite a few months. I downloaded 3.0 tonight and it works great with Flash CS3! You can create a Flash IDE project from a template. It works better than the Flash code editor (so did the previous version). It makes coming up to speed on the new APIs much easier.
