I found a link to FlashDevelop over the weekend whilst trying to figure out a problem I was having with font embedding in CS3. It, when combined with the free Adobe Flex SDK, is a free flash/flex development environment/compiler with a far better code interface than what I'm used to in CS3. It's got auto complete and code hints for classes you make yourself, along with a nice project interface. It feels quite a bit like Visual Studio.

You still need a copy of flash if you want to make animated .swfs for projects, particularly with vectors.

If your doing any coding in the now pretty old CS3 I'd recommend giving it a look. I don;'t know if CS4 is better for coding but I can't afford that right now, and CS5 must be on it's way soonish.

Still working on CS3 meself because this lot are too tight to pony up for CS4 just yet. Pity, I use flash a lot (mainly as a drawing tool rather than getting busy with hard coding). This looks good though, top link.
