Full AS3 support in planned for the next version of FlashDevelop, but if you can't wait, we managed to patch some AS3 support in FlashDevelop 2.0!

Ben Clinkinbeard made it possible by generating the Flex2 framework intrinsic classes. This was so cool that we decided to hack AS3 support in FlashDevelop 2.0.

I believe FlashDevelop now has probably the best AS3 support of any tool out there, other than Flex Builder 2.
- Tutorial: AS3 in FlashDevelop - 6th August 2006


Download:
- download AS3 intrinsic classes,
- download AS3/Flex2 patch for FD2 RC3 which provide (limited) AS3 completion, syntax color autodetection, and Flex 2 compiler error catching.

Installation:
- exit FlashDevelop,
- patch your FlashDevelop installation (unzip the files in C:\Program Files\FlashDevelop),
- launch FlashDevelop,
- add the path to the intrinsic classes as a project classpath,
- enjoy!

Mxml completion
- Download the Mxml definition file,
- remove the completion definitions file <FlashDevelop>/Data/XMLCompletion.xml,
- run FlashDevelop and open an HTML file to rebuild the completion definitions file,
- exit FlashDevelop,
- insert the content of Mxml-completion.xml into the completion definitions file after <html>...</html>, in between <mxml></mxml> tags,
- run FlashDevelop and open the program settings (F9),
- change the entry XmlCompletion.KnownLanguages to "html, mxml"
- enjoy!

Building:
You can build your Flex2 projects using:
- the FlashBuild plugin - (see Sam Coles' FlashBuild & Flex2 tutorial),
- Keith Peters' detailed ANT-based tutorial & project templates (version fran├žaise),
- smithaaronlee's FlashDevelop For ActionScript 3 and Flex 2 Projects With Logging Options.

Documentation:
Adobe provides an awesome tool called ASDoc. And it is very easy to integrate ASDoc in FlashDevelop!
