It's official. Apollo Alpha 1 has launched!
One of the coolest Apollo features is the new HTML rendering control and its Flex framework sibling, the HTML component. This post would feel naked without some kind of code snippet, so here's a super-simple but functional web browser in just three lines of code (or a few more if you count line breaks and closing tags :) ).
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
You'll notice that most of the buttons and controls you expect to see in a real web browser -- Back and Next buttons, and so on -- don't come pre-packaged with the HTML component. We'll deal with that issue in the next post.
