HFCD Beta Is Now Available

with 3 comments

I am pleased to announce that HFCD beta is now available for download. As I mentioned in my previous post, this is a much improved version, with a few key features added to make it a valuable tool for Flex developers. I am pretty excited about this but I need your help. If you are a Flex Builder user, please download HFCD and give it a try. I’d like to get as many bugs fixed as possible in the following weeks. This beta is good until the end of October, but I will likely have weekly updates until it’s stabilized.

Before you download HFCD, make sure you know what it is. HFCD allows for Flex Builder to compile Flex applications out-of-process. This usually results in shorter build time. You can run HFCD and Flex Builder on the same machine or you can run HFCD on a second machine. Running HFCD on a second machine (as long as it’s faster than the Flex Builder machine) is highly recommended.

Be sure to install the HFCD client and server SDK before installing the Flex Builder plugin. There is a short README in the zip archive and I promise to get the installation instructions online as soon as possible.

When you register, please provide accurate contact info. I will give away some licenses when this goes final. Also, if you like HFCD, please tell your coworkers and your friends. I believe all Flex Builder users should give this a try.

Thanks and happy coding!

    • Specify the files in the “HFCD FileSet” view and click “Upload Files”. Basically, any files that FB resource manager doesn’t care should be specified in the “HFCD FileSet” view.
