Mika says:

This release is long overdue but there were a few issues that we wanted to resolve and then there were summer vacations... :)
There are quite a lot of new features and really nice stability improvements, we hope that all of you enjoy this release!

GUI:

* Completion for package-level declarations and Flash 10's Vector. type
* New generator: Ctrl+Shift+1 on a non-imported type to generate the import
* Go To Declaration (F4) with SWC classes display a generated pseudo-class
* Improved generators

MXML:

Important:

* Backup your customized user files: The setting files have changed quite a lot so check before you overwrite the new ones.
* Get Adobe Flex 3 SDK. The free Flex SDK (2 or 3) is required for ActionScript 3 development if you don't use Flash CS3.
* Get the debug Flash player (you need: projector and Active X)
* Java 1.6+ is required for the Flex compiler (ActionScript 3).
