One of the most requested updates at the Yahoo! Developer Network is to upgrade the Maps API’s to support Actionscript 3. In fact, over 500 of you have voted for this, and your wish is our command. Starting today, you’ll now be able to work with a native AS3 mapping component, brought to you by our own Zach Graves, Yahoo! Maps and the YDN.

Highly compact at only 30kb, this component won’t weigh your widget down, and those of you who know AS3 know that a native component handles raster graphics and overlays with ease, greatly improving performance. The new api supports complex custom markers, local search, geocoding, and of course maps, satellite and hybrid out of the box.

Take a look at the YDN release informationwhere there’s more info, examples,and a couple of screencasts, and for you developers looking for the Flash edge, you’re welcome.
