Thanks for the suggestion about an Actionscript Developers Edition - we'll take a look at that option for future versions.
In regards to your other question - yes, your Flex 3 beta will expire in 30 days. You can purchase Flex Builder 2 without charting for $250 - and it will unlock the beta until March of next year. When Flex 3 comes out next year, you can then purchase Flex Builder 3 Standard to continue your use.
I was under the impression that the M3 trial period was 60 days, not 30, and that after Nov. 1, if you buy Flex 2, you could pay $99 for "maintenance," which would entitle you to a free upgrade to flex 3 when it is released, making the price for flex 3 (Standard Edition) now $350, not $500. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
That's right, ab1301. You can get FB 3 Standard for either $250 later (waiting until final release) or $350 now ($250 for FB 2 on Nov 1, $100 for maintenance and free upgrade, unlimited use of beta 2 in the meantime).
There will also be upgrade pricing for FB 2 users who haven't purchased maintenance, but we don't have those numbers available yet.
I've read all this info in a couple of places. The fact remains, here on November 2nd, that when I go to the adobe web site, to purchase my copy, the price is still $499 for the standard version of 2, and $299 to add charting. my boss is ready, willing, and able over here to buy Flex2, with I guess the "support" package to allow getting flex3 when it ships. But, why spend $499 for a product that is supposed to have dropped about in half? Where is the magic place to go to get the new pricing?
