Tip of the Day – Get notified when someone checks in to the Flex SDK

Something that I have wanted to do for a while is to be notified whenever anyone checks into the Flex SDK. That way I can keep up with all the changes as they happen. I finally figured out how to set it up today.

  1. Visit the commits forum. Click the subscribe button.
    commitsubscribe_01
  2. Select Email or Email Digest.
    commitsubscribe_02
  3. I use gmail, Select Settings > Filters > Create a new filter. Setup the panel as shown.
    commitsubscribe_03

    UPDATE (3/30/2009):

    The subject on the Flex SDK commit emails has changed slightly. The filter in the email no longer works. I am now using this filter instead: “svn:fx” of “[svn]”

  4. Click Next Step, I use these setting so the emails don’t crowd my inbox.
    commitsubscribe_04
  5. Woot, now I can see all of the changes to the Flex SDK as they happen.
    commitsubscribe_05
