We are thrilled to finally release FDT 5.5. Many of you have been using 5.5 beta and we received loads of fantastic feedback that helped us introduce you to the best FDT ever. FDT 5.5 is a free update for all FDT 5 customers. We added heaps of fantastic new features to this big release and we’re sure you’ll like them. The most awesome feature we integrated is the new community feature “SWF Bridge“. It allows you to write your own FDT plug-ins in ActionScript in no time. Nearly everything is possible, so go ahead and check out Alan’s blog post and get started with your first personal FDT Plug-In right away. We also created a microsite where we gathered all relevant information. Furthermore we worked hard on FDT’s Haxe support and implemented some improvements. And there’s a lot more to discover:
- Blackberry Support
- ANE Support
- Setup Wizard
- Debugger Enhancements
- Improved Quick Assists & Fixes
- New Ant Tasks
- QuickFix for new code should take priority over Assist
- Profile & Debug without compiling
- Flexible SDK setups
- New Project Templates
- New Project Template Features
- Set default for Haxe Flash projects to AVM 2
- Captive runtime GUI support
- Change Exit Postion For ‘Create Field In Class…’

- See more in our JIRA and in our release notes.
With FDT 5.5 we are introducing a whole new license management: FDT subscriptions. Software subscriptions aim at precisely matching your needs with respect to time. Subscribe to FDT when you need it and cancel it when you’re done. This allows you to react a lot more flexible to the quickly changing, dynamic environment. From now on, FDT will periodically check your license’s validity, enabling you to allocate your budget to those times when you need FDT the most. Please make sure that FDT is allowed to use Port 80 to communicate with our license server. For more details please check our blogpost. Some great examples and sample calculations to this long awaited novelty are presented in this blog post.
To download FDT 5.5 either insert http://fdt.powerflasher.com/update/fdt5 under ”Help -> Software Updates -> Find and install…” in Eclipse or download the standalone version on http://fdt.powerflasher.com/buy-download.
Many thanks to all the beta testers, keep posting your feedback!
