This release is the most significant since LiveCycle first shipped back in 2004, now with built in support for not just PDF & HTML, but also Flex is a first class citizen with deep integration into the core of LiveCycle which allows the extension of back end systems out to the richest experience possible today.
For developers there is plenty of good news, which a completely new common invocation layer & orchestration engine. Also there is a new Eclipse based process design tool, allowing you to have everything from Form Design, Flex Design (when using Flex Builder), Process Design and more in the one environment, with support for versioning and access control etc.

So if you think you know LiveCycle.. take a new look, you’ll definitely be impressed.
