Authoring for Flash Player 11.1

To target Flash Player 11.1, you will need to target SWF version 14 by passing in an extra compiler argument to the Flex compiler: -swf-version=14. Directions are below.
If you are using the Adobe Flex SDK:

  • Download the new playerglobal.swc for Flash Player 11.1
  • Download Flex 4.5.1 SDK (4.5.1.213287) from the Flex 4.5 SDK table.
  • Install the build in your development environment
    • In Flash Builder, create a new ActionScript project: File -> New -> ActionScript project.
    • Open the project Properties panel (right-click and chose 'Properties'). Select 'ActionScript Compiler' from the list on the left.
    • Use the 'Configure Flex SDK's' option in the upper right hand corner to point the project to Flex build 21328. Click ok.
  • Configure your project to target SWF version 14
    • Open the project Properties panel (right-click and chose 'Properties'). Select 'ActionScript Compiler' from the list on the left.
    • Add to the 'Additional compiler arguments' input: -swf-version=14. This ensures the outputted SWF targets SWF version 14. If you compile on the command-line and not in Flash Builder, you need to add the same compiler argument.
    • Ensure you have installed the new Flash Player 11.1 build in your browser.

Authoring for AIR 3.1

Update to the AIR 3.1 namespace.You must update your application descriptor file to the 3.1 namespace in order to target AIR 3.1. If your application does not require the new AIR 3.1 features, you are not required to update the namespace. However, we recommend all users start using the AIR 3.1 namespace even if you are not yet taking advantage of the new 3.1 capabilities. To update the namespace, change the xmlns attribute in your application descriptor to:

 

<application  xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/air/application/3.1">
