+<div class="headline"><h4>Current Release (4.7.0)</h4></div>
+The Apache Flex team is pleased to offer this release, available as of the 18th of March
2015. We welcome feedback and contributions to it from the wider Apache Flex community.
+**Please be aware of the dependencies listed in the section below.**  They are required in
order to compile the Tour De Flex Examples.  The [README][15] explains these requirements

+<div class="headline"><h4>Dependencies</h4></div>
+Apache Flex Blaze DS requires some build tools which must be installed prior to building
Blaze DS.
+####General Requirements
+- Java SDK 1.6 or greater
+- Maven 2.2.0 or greater 
+####Verify the integrity of the files
+Apache relies on 3rd party mirrors to distribute their software.  Because these releases
are hosted on servers that are not under our control, we strongly recommend that you verify
the integrity of the binaries or source code before you install it using the PGP or MD5 signatures
listed next to the downloads.  This involves a few extra steps, but it will verify that you
are getting a true Apache release.
+The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the [KEYS][10] as well
as the asc signature file for the relevant distribution. Make sure you get these files as
linked from this page (rather than a mirror) to insure the integrity of the files.
+    % pgpk -a KEYS
+    % pgpv blazeds-4.7.0-source-release.tar.gz.asc
+    % pgp -ka KEYS
+    % pgp blazeds-4.7.0-source-release.tar.gz.asc
+    % gpg --import KEYS
+    % gpg --verify blazeds-4.7.0-source-release.tar.gz.asc
+Alternatively, you can verify the MD5 signature on the files. A unix/Mac program called `md5`
or `md5sum` is included in many unix distributions. It is also available as part of [GNU Textutils][11].
Windows users can get binary md5 programs from [here][12] , [here][13] , or [here][14]. An
MD5 signature consists of 32 hex characters, and a SHA1 signature consists of 40 hex characters.
Ensure your generated signature string matches the signature string published in the files
