+####Apache Flex Work:
+- The Apache Flex team is currently testing a release candidate for Apache Flex 4.8.0.  Apache
Flex 4.8.0 will be a "parity" release with Adobe Flex 4.6.0.  We are essentially testing our
processes to make sure we can produce a build that allows you to continue to use all the cool
features of the Flex Framework, under the new Apache license.  Future builds will implement
bug fixes, new features and new components.  [Check out the README on our SVN][2] to see how
to grab this new testing build yourself.
+
+- Trademark issues have been largely cleared up.  The Flex trademark is just waiting on some
procedural dance to happen before all the trademark issues have been resolved.
+
+- Our bug-tracking / issue-tracking system (JIRA) now has all of issues from the Adobe bug
tracker.  This will allow us to continue to work on any issues you may have reported to Adobe
as of January 30th, 2012.
+
+- Issue attachments to include SDK, DMV, and Automation bugs up until about January 30, 2012.
+
+- The Mustella test suite has been donated and a few tests have been written (check-in tests
as well as a few component tests).  More tests are forthcoming but we now have the ability
to do some limited testing for bad code.  Adobe has been running our trunk code against their
tests (including those that they cannot legally donate) and has been reporting the results
to us.
+
+- For those of you that wish to compile the compiler, framework code, etc., the ANT-based
compiles have re-engineered to make it extremely easy for you to get started.  Check out the
README file and the related env.properties.template file for the information required to get
started.
+
+####Community Work:
+- A group of contributors are working to make it easy to download and compile the framework
to be used with many of the major IDEs (including Flash Builder and IntelliJ).  They are using
an AIR/Flex application that will download all the required components for you and set them
up in the proper directory so you don’t have to track down all the required pieces and
parts. [Check it out here][3]
+
+- FlexUnit is in the [process of being donated to Apache][4] (Thanks Michael Labriola!)
+
+- Justin Mclean has updated an [excellent presentation][5] on the Apache Flex history and
path to how we got here.
+
+- [360|MIN][6] was announced by the producers of 360|Flex (now known as 360|Stack).  It will
take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on October 22 – 23, during the week that Adobe MAX
2012 was supposed to occur.  360|MIN is a barcamp-style gathering that will feature many of
the contributors from Apache Flex.

   - The Apache Flex Project has received the entire Flex Framework.  This includes all components
that were completed in Adobe’s 4.6.0 release and a few others.  Essentially if you take
the existing compiler to the frameworks code, you would get what amounts to the current Adobe
release.

   - The Apache Flex team has created a set of build scripts so that anybody can easily build
their own copy of the framework.  Apache ANT scripts will be officially supported, but other
developers have offered to make build scripts for Maven.
 
-  - Pre-compiled builds have been created [and posted][2].  They are not the 'official' 4.8.0
version yet, but they are getting close.  You can download them and put them in your Flash
Builder or IntelliJ SDKs directory and see how they look with your existing projects today.
 This is a parity release to the current Adobe 4.6.0 release.

   - Apache committers have begun donating various components to the framework, including
an FXGImage component, some collections classes, some major work around validation, busy indicators
for non-mobile components, and some navigators.  These components have not been integrated
into the trunk (the main project), but you should expect to see some of them in the future.

   - A team has formed to build what amounts to an automated installer for Apache Flex SDK.
 This is an AIR application that will allow a user to do a single-click install of the SDK,
and integrate it into Flash Builder 4.6.0 (and possibly other IDEs).
