Flex 3 Schema for XML Editors

Because of the large changes in the MXML attributes from Flex 2 to Flex 3, it wasn't possible for me to spend enough time changing the Flex 2 Schema for XML Editors to support the new version.

Adobe release pocket Flex 3 / AIR 1 reference for free under creative commons

If you are still waiting for your Flex Builder 3 posters to arrive, you could do worse than print out a copy of the 'pocket' Flex/AIR reference Adobe just released.

Page 4 has a handy 'show to people who ask what I do' diagram too :-)

Update Aug. '09:The DV components are now available on their own, with full source and no need for a Builder licence to remove watermarks.
If you need older versions though, you'll still need the below instructions.

First, install the Flex 3 SDK:
