Amethyst 1.1 Released

Improved Flash IDE integration and more
by Huw Collingbourne
Tuesday 19 October 2010.

Amethyst 1.1 - SapphireSteel Software’s visual design, editing and debugging environment for the Adobe Flash Platform - is released today and is available for download.

Amethyst 1.1 adds or enhances a number of features and it fixes some issues reported by users. Amethyst Professional is available for a free 60 Day trial, after which the software automatically degrades to Amethyst Personal unless a license is bought. Amethyst Personal Edition is a free ActionScript editing and debugging IDE which lacks some of the Professional Edition’s high-end features such as the visual designer, refactoring and multi-process debugging.

These are the principal new or improved features in Amethyst 1.1:
- Flash IDE Properties Page supports configurable named profiles (Build, Release etc.)

- Conditional compiler directives supported for Flash projects as well as for Flex projects

- SmartTags (for refactoring etc.) supported in VS2010 bringing Amethyst 2010 to parity with 2008

- New code formatting option to adjust spacing both before and after colons

- Module SWFs can now be automatically built in directories other than the main output

Other changes have been made to improve IntelliSense, code formatting, build configurations, integration with Flash IDE and debugging. Refer to the Amethyst Release History Page for full details.

To download Amethyst 1.1 for Visual Studio 2010 or Visual Studio 2008, go to the Amethyst Download Page.
