      Our current ’edge’ releases support VS2010 and Flex 4.0. We will release the 1st release candidate in a few days.

        Can I subscribe to receive the release news? How long do you expect to delivery the final release? I think a solution like yours is better than Team Explorer Everywhere running in Eclipse. I believe the world will prefer too. Run, run, run....

          Thanks for the comments ;-) You can subscribe to our RSS feed at the bottom right of the page. You can also download the ’edge’ releases via links in the forum (see the Forum link at the top of this page). The best way to keep up to date is by checking the Blog and the Forum. We always make significant announcements in both those places. We expect the final release very soon. Release Candidate 1 will go out this week. We expect (probably) to have at least one more release candidate later this month. The final release shouldn’t be too long after that.

            HI, I downloaded the edge release and I have some comments: 1. VS 2010 differently as you said doesn’t show any Amethyst item template to create a new project in File | New project 2. VS 2008 shows but a warning occurs when I create a Flex4 application project: http://twitpic.com/242o8t Thanks.

              The latest edge release is only for VS2008 (we will be making one for VS2010 soon). There are two versions of Amethyst - one for VS2008 and one for VS2010. You can install both on the same machine and they will work independently, just like VS2008 and VS2010. The functionality is the same (apart from a minor problem with SmartTags in VS2010 which I will fix).

              The problem in the screenshot is due to us tidying things up a bit before the release. The problem only occurs for projects created with an old version of Amethyst (before we produces a version for VS2010).

              To fix it, you need to unload the project and edit the project file. Find the line near the end of the project file:

              <Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath)\SapphireSteel Software\1.0\Amethyst.targets" />

              and change it to

              <Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath)\SapphireSteel Software\Amethyst 2008\Amethyst.targets" />

              Save the project file and reload the project.

                  Can you check the Compiler options in Project/Properties? It looks as though you have have an international option set (imported from an old Flex Builder project maybe?)

                  If you’d like to discuss any technical problems in more detail, can I request that you join our forum: http://sapphiresteel.com/forum.

                  The Blog is not really the ideal place to discuss technical issues like this.

                  Thanks

                  Huw

                    We now have a tutorial to explain how to deal with ’locale’ issues: Debugging Into The Flex SDK

                  Just for the record: If you have this problem you have to add the following swc to your classpath:

                  $FLEX_HOME/frameworks/locale/en_US/rpc_rb.swc

                  Cheers.
