I would expect this to work. The released FB will certainly open up an FXP saved from beta Catalyst. I'm not sure of there have been any changes in the Flex SDK in that time that might make the code not compile any more.
Even if there are SDK changes, it would be easy to fix up the code in Builder.
I just downloaded Catalyst Beta 2 and Flash Builder 4 release. I can export FXP from Catalyst Beta 2, and import into Flash Builder 4. But when I export FXP from Flash Builder 4 and try to import into Catalyst Beta 2, I get a "cannot open this project" message.
I'd love to be tinkering with Catalyst, but it's basically impossible to do so at the moment, since Flash Builder 4 Beta is no longer available for download.
Is there somewhere I can download Flash Builder 4 Beta? It seems to be gone from the Labs Wiki.
With Catalyst Beta 2, the workflow is one way, from Catalyst to Builder. Once you've edited a project in Builder, you can no longer edit it in Catalyst. This is true with both the Beta and release versions of Builder.
Is that going to change when Catalyst is released? Will we be able to take projects from Builder back into Catalyst?
Now I have tried with Flash Builder 4 and there are some errors I do not know how to correct.
from several images I have in Catalyst, the following are not supported in FB4
Also, in the application definition
Catalyst gives preloaderBaseColor="#000000"
is this the same in FB4 as preloaderChromeColor="#000000" ?

Since FC was released in Beta 2, some properties have been renamed in flex.
resizeMode, should be replaced with fillMode
preloaderBaseColor, should be replaced with preloaderChromeColor (you've got it ).
Let me know if this fixes it up for you!
The fillMode options are clip, repeat and scale.
Since there is no "noScale" option, I deleted references for these items (as I take it that the default is noScale, but just no option to make it implicitly noScale), recompiled and "Bobs your Auntie" No errors and looks fne(ish). fonts are a problem now.. But I shall sort that.
One major problem is that the data lists with a custom scrollbar do not now scroll.
When I hover the mouse over it, the list scrolls with the mousewheel, but does not scroll when the scrollbar components (up/down and thumb) are clicked on. Crazy..
