flash player 8 to support e4x

It seems that the new Flash Player will add ECMAScript for XML (E4X) to ActionScript. And it’s supposed to be faster than current XML support in the Flash Player.

It would seem that this tidbit was accidentally leaked on the flexcoders mailing list in a post here. I do feel for the fella who posted the message to the forum by mistake but I have to give him ponts for thoroughness. Not only does he mention that the Flash Player will support the feature but he also gives a great little E4X primer and even links to the ECMA spec documents.
