Major changes in the documentation section

Today we rearranged documentation pages in the 'Docs' section. The old 'Vine Toolkit 1.1 Guides' document is a base for a new two guides: Vine Admin Guide and Vine Developer's Guide. The first one is more about configuration and deployment of provided framework and the second for developers wanting to add new functionality to Vine ( both application and service layer will be covered ).

Vine updates to the Flex 4

From today on Vine Toolkit supports the Flex 4 compiler and syntax. Unfortunately Flex 4 is not fully backward compatible so your existing Flex 3 apps need to be enhanced. Currently we provide two options, use Vine bundles ( version <= 1.2 ) with Flex 3 SDK or latest Vine from the SVN with the Flex 4 SDK.
