SWX: A new data exchange format for Flash.
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!
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! :)
