Yahoo ASTRA : Flash CS3 Components

Yahoo have released a set of free Flash CS3 Components called ASTRA.  The component set includes a Tree, Menu, TabBar, AutoComplete and Charts.  Flex developers already have access to components like these through the Flex Framework.  But Adobe hasn't released equivalents for pure Flash developments.  There are a number of excellent commercial component sets around but who can argue with free.  To help developers get started with these tools Yahoo have provided a simple sample application : the ASTRA Aquarium which provides an example of using all the components.  The source code is available for download and there is also a comprehensive tutorial.
