Amethyst 2 Ultimate includes a revolutionary ’bubble-based’ debugger (above) which allows you to step through a linked network of debug bubbles as you trace function calls while debugging.
The Amethyst license permits a single user to make multiple installations of Amethyst on one or more PCs. The software is licensed per user so a license is required for each developer. Amethyst 2 Ultimate can be installed into both VS2010 and VS2012 on a single PC.
Amethyst provides all the tools you would expect from a professional-quality Visual Studio development product including:
Customizable Code Formatting
Drag-and-Drop application design
Align controls to ‘alignment bars’
Align controls to a customizable grid
Round-tripping between the Designer and Code Editor
Import/Convert Wizard for existing Flex or Flash Builder projects
Share code with the Flash IDE to edit and debug Flash projects with Amethyst
Amethyst 2 Ultimate includes numerous innovative features including a built-on obfuscator, C#-style conditional compilation, a profiler and memory graph (shown above) and an SWF obfuscater.
Amethyst supports team development with multiple-project solutions, named build configurations, incremental compilation and integration with TeamServer. It can share a codebase with other IDEs including Flash Builder and Flex Builder to allow teams to work on a project using a mix of development tools. Amethyst imports Flash IDE (e.g. CS4/CS5) projects so that animators may continue working on timeline-based development in the Flash IDE while programmers have access to Amethyst’s advanced editor and debugger.
The Amethyst Designer, code editor and debugger are seamlessly integrated into Visual Studio. Amethyst allows you to use the familiar Visual Studio tools such as the Properties panel, the Events panel, the Alignment Toolbar, the Solution Explorer, Project and Global Property dialogs, the Task List, Go To Definition, Find All References, the Object Browser and more besides...
Amethyst is available in two editions: The commercial edition, Amethyst Ultimate, and a free edition, Amethyst Personal. Amethyst Ultimate includes a full suite of professional quality tools including the Amethyst Designer, extensive code refactoring, powerful IntelliSense and a world-class debugger. Amethyst Personal provides a limited range of editing features.
When you first install Amethyst, you have access to all the Ultimate edition features for a 30 day trial period. When the trial period expires, you may buy a license to unlock the features of Amethyst Ultimate. If you do not buy a license, the software automatically degrades to Amethyst Personal.
