Alcon 2.0 Public Beta released
I’m happy to announce that Alcon 2.0 has finally been made public. The new version was completely rewritten using ActionScript 3 and Flex 2 and contains several new features that I missed in version 1. The most significant additions are the following:
– Output of up to four log files. You can define which log files to output by changing the settings in the AlconConfig.xml file. Like this it is easily possible to watch the flashlog.txt file that can be created with the Flash Debug Player (more info on this here and here).
– Alcon now features an Inspect panel for inspecting objects.
– A hexadecimal dump of an object can be made. Don’t ask me what this might be useful for now but you never know.
– Alcon now features a stopwatch that can be used to measure passed time more easily.
– You are now able to monitor the current host application’s stage framerate and memory usage.
For more info and download check out the Alcon page over at osflash.org.
Please note that this is a beta version! It still has bugs and the Debug class for ActionScript 2.0 is not yet included.
