The term "SDK" can be used to describe different things:

-- The SWF 3 file format was publicly documented on the Macromedia website
quite awhile ago.

-- The additions in the SWF 4 file format aren't publicly documented yet,
but I'm told they should be pushed live "soon"

-- The Macromedia Flash Player software developers kit is a different
thing entirely (think of the file format spec vs the player code spec), and
the news announcement describes this as freely available only to strategic
partners such as browser or device developers. (ie, the announcement does
not say this will be publicly published... it says the Player SDK remain

-- The chapter of the Flash documentation on how to use the new printing
abilities was also called "SDK".

>From reading your posts, I'm not certain what you're attempting to do, and
which of these various things called "SDK" you might be seeking...?
