With the new dependency visualizer receives for the first time a Result of the FDT Labs indentation in a full version of the professional development environment. He is the representation of all dependencies on classes and packages in an interactive graph to develop in cleaner architectures. In addition, the team has made a significant optimization of the speed. This performance can be work in larger projects. So, for example compile operations are twice to three times as fast as in previous versions. FDT 4.0 for the first time, also offers the possibility of additional plug-in the to integrate into the development environment. There are already extensions for the programming language popular in the community knuckle”and the even faster compiler HFCD.
Create and manage has been improved in FDT 4.0 also project and code templates. The management of the SDK has been revised. Adobe’s software development kit (SDK) as well as the corresponding code libraries can be so much easier in FDT embed and edit. Also the Flex 4 SDK from Adobe can be added with a click. So be well the new features of Adobe’s Flex developer framework 4 supports.
The user creates a new project, he can fall back on a wide variety of ready-made project types or design it yourself. These project templates are for action script 3, Flex 3 and 4 and Adobe AIR available. This will simplify otherwise tedious and time-consuming creating new projects. More templates and CodeSnippets including for iPhone and Android can be installed free of charge via the connected community. The selection process of the new features of FDT 4.0 the Powerflasher received especially on the suggestions of the FDT user. Michael Plank, so-called product-owner of the agile team with the power flashes, this is an important part of the philosophy of FDT: when planning and developing the new FDT features we wanted to match as closely as possible these wishes the FDT user.
