SWX: A new data exchange format for Flash.

SWX: The SWF Data Exchange Format

You don't need to wonder what project codename The Tangent is any longer. The tangent is SWX!

SWX stands for SWF Data Exchange Format. It's a new way of working with data in Flash that uses simple SWF files to exchange data. SWX is the natural, native way to get data into Flash: You loadMovie() your data!

And you receive your data in a tasty SWF shell. Yum!

If you want to find out more, head on down to the SWX homepage (swxformat.org) and read the introductory article on SWX.

I just finished uploading the initial release and I opened up the SWX SVN repository for read access. You can either check out the latest version from there or download a .zip of the release from the SWX download page.

Don't forget that this is a very early alpha. Read the known issues and limitations section in the SWX documentation for more information.

I can't tell you how excited I am about SWX and I hope that you will be too after you read up on it and try it out. And please let me know what you think by leaving a comment either here or on the SWX homepage!

Here's to SWX! I hope you enjoy using it! :)
