DIY Flex SDK 3.3 in Flex Builder

Adobe has updated the flex SDK to 3.3 – they did so in March this year. I had assumed that this update was part of the Adobe auto updating regime – all other Adobe applications are handled, but apparently not all parts of the Flex Builder. So instead of waiting for things to fix themselves, I did it manually using these clear and simple instructions.

I was playing around with the Flex 4 betas when I saw it. Installing the Flex 4 SDK follows the same steps, but using it is a roller-coaster of weird bugs and exiting new features. I’m currently trying to get to terms with the new Text Layout Framework API. Exploring new APIs is overwhelming, but I have to say that it looks very good indeed.
