+1 since Spark is dead and not featured enough for some serious work.

But the need to produce Flash exists (opposed to having the Flash 
fetching XML data) : we're using it to display animated diagrams on 
small devices (PDAs & phones) where SVG is not available. In order to 
save bandwidth and CPU, we send the diagram as a Flash movie (generated 
by Cocoon), and XML fetching is only used for animation (changing 
colors, moving objects, etc).

We've investigating KineticFusion (commercial, [1]) which does a nice 
job. Anybody else having some experience with it or some other 
equivalent tool?
