Xray (The Admintool) Goes Open Source

Xray logoJohn Grden has just announced on the OSFlash mailing list that Xray, the tool previously known as the Admintool, has been released as open source under an MIT license on OSFlash.

What is Xray? Here's the description from the Xray page on OSFlash:

"Xray (The AdminTool) is a "snapshot viewer" of the current state of your Flash application without impacting the performance or the file size of your application. Xray's true nature is to look into the very guts of the Flash application and disolve the 2d myth you see on screen to a 3D tangible entity you can truly crawl through."

Needless to say, Xray is going to have an amazing impact on how you develop Flash applications.

Big thanks to John and to Blitz for sharing this valuable tool with the community.

(And yes, this was the second of the two new open source projects I had hinted at in last week's OSFlash update.)
