Most threads show bug of Simulator 0.9.3. But not this one. :-)
I just downloaded and tested the new simulator for my application. It works very good. And I am so happy with it.
Why? Because my application crash without any exception feedback on Simulator 0.9.2.
I struggle a lot already to find the problem but still cannot find it.
Especially, the same application works just fine without any problem on AIR desktop testing environment.
So, it seems to me that the 0.9.3 fixed some bug of 0.9.2.
I almost give up with 0.9.2 and try to find if there is any error / debug log file on QNX.
Because the Flex Builder on debug mode cannot show any exception/problem about the crash.
Application is just crash and force to close without any message/explanation on 0.9.2.
But now, it seems I can relax a bit. My app works just fine on 0.9.3, just like it works on AIR desktop.
I am not sure anyone has such headache like I had with 0.9.2 ...

Find a little problem with 0.9.3
I am using Arial font, everything show up correct on 0.9.2
but on 0.9.3 the very last character is only half way ( half is gone. )
Not sure font size change a bit ( or textWidth problem ).
Anyway, just modify it to suit 0.9.3 ...

spoke too soon eh?
glad you got most of it worked out! i was petrified when i ran my app hoping nothing broke like last time (phew). so far minor bugs on my end but nothing that wasnt fixed with a reset.

To add to the lovefest for 0.9.3:
4 of my 5 apps compiled and run just fine from 0.9.2 to 0.9.3 (except for sound). The performance seems a little faster too. I will try to back that up with real numbers later.
My 5th app is a little more complicated and will tackle that later today.
Browser is a nice beginning and will make oAuth a lot easier. Once they fix the navigateToURL and allow more site to work in it (and some useability issues with the controls), it will be a nice browser.

I am happy to hear that there are noticeable differences on the good side. I downloaded the updates yesterday but will not be able to install and work with them until tonight. I hope to share in the success of the new simulator.
I like the idea of adding 5 to the width, jtegen, it just blows that we have to do something like that...
