 The [Open Spoon Foundation][2] has been providing monthly updates as to the goings-on of
the Apache Flex project through
 their "Apache Revue" newsletter.  You can also check out the [Apache Flex Blog][3] for critical
updates.
 
+<div class="headline"><h4>Where can I find the Apache Flex Roadmap?</h4></div>
+We do not have a roadmap.  That is not the Apache Way™.  Apache Flex is a project run
and maintained by volunteers.  The
+way that Apache works is that each developer do what they are passionate about.  There is
no release schedule,
+and therefore, there is no official roadmap.  You can always make suggestions via JIRA or
the mailing lists for
+new features that you wish to see and if they are good enough a developer will pick them
up.  You can always
+contribute your own code for new features as well.  You can find out more about contributing
code on the [Get
+Involved page][1].
 
+All that being said, you can check out what developers are working on by peeking in the "Whiteboard"
area of the
+source control.  There is a lot of cool projects incubating there that may (or may not) make
it into future
+releases.
 
+<div class="headline"><h4>What happens to my projects if Adobe Discontinues the
Flash Player?</h4></div>
+It is true that current Flex projects are tied to either the Adobe Flash Player or Adobe
AIR.  We have been making great
+strides to compile projects to native JavaScript, therefore bypassing the Flash Player in
the browser.  Adobe
+has made a committment to support the Flash Player and our current runtime for at least 5
years from the time
+they donated the project to Apache.  You can find out more about their roadmap on the [Adobe
Flash Whitepaper][5].
 
+Event if Adobe no longer created new versions of the Flash Player, it is still had an incredible
install base
+(being installed on over 90% of internet-connected PCs).  If the Flash Player were no longer
updated today, it would
+still be installed just about everywhere.
+
+<div class="headline"><h4>Will my code work on Platform X?</h4></div>
+The currently released version of Apache Flex will output to either SWF of AIR.  SWF is supported
within browsers on
+Windows 2000 through Windows 8, Mac OSX, Linux (using Chrome), many phones and some smartphones.
 AIR allows
+you to take your Flex application and output native applications for Android (2.2+), iOS
(3+),certain
+BlackBerry QNX devices (Playbook), MacOSX and Microsoft Windows.
+
+We are currently working on supporting JavaScript as an output.  This will increase support
to anywhere HTML5
+is supported.
+
+Other platforms may be added if Adobe AIR beings to support them.  Unfortunatly, we are not
in control of adding
+additional support for other platforms at this time.
+
+<div class="headline"><h4>Can I submit apps I make with Apache Flex to App Store
X?</h4></div>
+By using Adobe AIR with Apache Flex, you can produce applications that can be submitted to
the Apple App Store, Android
+Market, Apple Mac App Store and Blackberry App World.  There are very successful projects
that have been submitted
+to all of the above.  In fact, you can actually use one code base to create apps for each
of the different platforms
+to submit to all of the different stores!
+
+Apache Flex coupled with Adobe AIR allows you to make Apple iOS Applications from a Windows
PC.  You will need a Mac in
+order to submit the app to the store.
+
+<div class="headline"><h4>Does Apache Flex cost money?</h4></div>
+No.  This is a completely open-source project and uses the [Apache License v. 2.0][6].  This
allows you to use the SDK and
+any outputs of the SDK for personal and commericial use with virtually no restrictions. 
Some of the recommended tooling
+(not produced by Apache) costs money, however you are more than free to use the included
command-line compilers
+and toolsets.
