Will there be an AS4 / AS 3.1 anytime soon? I really do not want to buy CS5 if a CS6 is going to come out in like a year or two and have a new AS version and then feel stupid for upgrading at a poor time.
I seriously doubt there will be an AS4 in the near future, and if if there is an AS3.1, it wont be too different to current AS3

Agreed , haXe also has much better (and stricter) data typing , its also multi purpose and comes with many more ways to declare variables and everything is much more logical in haXe, combine it with notepad++ or flashDevelop and you'll never need AS4 , i doubt adobe could really make an update worth the money what with all their gimmicking craze

AS can't have overloading. It doesn't exactly have any sugar either. And don't you mean interfaces?

Why can't AS have overloading? I actually haven't looked into interfaces at all, so if those take the place of C++'s virtual functions, I'll take a look.
Overloading isn't compatible with dynamic resolution of calls and first-class functions without delegates. AS instead has default arguments which covers cases where overloading would actually be useful.
Everything else you could reasonably want is given by haXe.
Why should they bother to make another language? AS3 seems perfect. I myself am not a fan of AS3 but I know you can do a lot of stuff in it, possibly more than AS2.

Not possibly , definitely , several times more, several times better.
