Thanks for the heads up Martin! Thermo definitely sounds promising.
I'm curious what the what designers in the group think about tools
like this. Is it going to work? Is it going to be powerful enough for
designers? Are AS3 developers going to be happy with the code it
produces? Let's discuss.

I a starting to play with Flex and also want to try
Silverlight/Expression Blend from Microsoft; but I think this kind of
presentation layer technologies are the way to go.
We have been stretching the capabilities of HTML by embedding
behavior through scripting, but HTML was conceived for handling big
amounts of content in a light, standardized format for the www.
When you get the option to leverage on vectorial-based UI technology
for all your layout, widgets, user in-line notifications and
transitions; working with images for building up your app's
character starts feeling a bit primitive.
Again, I currently use ajax/css/html but I dream of the day when I
can focus totally on the design and less on addressing the viability
of an idea based on the Ajax library support, the cost of maintaining
bugs (like browsers compatibility). Exploring new ways to create
products away from "document-canvas" paradigm.
I think these tools (and hopefully soon a Open Source IDE for this)
can help us get there. Definitely the technology in which the design
is being implemented has a big deal on impact on the design process
