 In November, 2011, Adobe announced they were no longer supporting Adobe Flex.  Instead of

bugs, providing additional
 components and finishing unfinished components.  As we progress through additional versions,
we will be less and
 less like Adobe's Flex framework, but we will strive to be compatible with it.
 
 Adobe has offered some of their customers extended support contracts, and may produce additional
versions, but
 that is unlikely.  Future support of the Flex Framework is through this project.
