Amethyst Flex IDE Beta 3 - updated information

A couple of important updates
by Huw Collingbourne
Friday 27 February 2009.

If you’ve downloaded Amethyst beta 3, I’d like to draw your attention to two updated sources of information on this site.

These are:

- 1) Download and Install Amethyst

This has been updated for beta 3 and we have added a section of Known Issues. Here we will place notes relating to any known problems relating to the current beta software. Currently we have one issue logged - namely:

  • When you Run an application (CTRL+F5) you will see a message saying that the build output directory cannot be found. This problem does not arise when debugging (F5).
  • Workaround: Load Project/Properties. Find General/Flash Browser File. Change the extension from .htm to .html. select File/Save All. Now Run (CTRL+F5) should work correctly.

In the course of the beta test period it is quite likely that we will identify other issues or receive reports of problems and these will be noted (along with fixes if we have them) on the Download page.

If you experience problems using Amethyst or have any requests for additional features, we urge you to report these to us either on the SapphireSteel Software forum or by making contact with Support. The more feedback we receive, the more rapidly we will be able to find and fix problems, incorporate new features or improve existing ones.

- 2) A Brief Guide To Amethyst

This guide was originally written for beta 1. It has now been rewritten to provide more up-to-date information on the latest beta.

As always, if you want to keep up with all the latest information on Amethyst (or our Ruby product, Ruby In Steel), be sure to check back on the Blog which is updated regularly.
