Subject Early access to Falcon compiler
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2012 09:29:32 GMT
At the Paris Flex meeting, I spoke with Thibault Imbert, who is Senior Runtimes product manager
, about the fact that the Apache Flex project would really benefit from having some kind of
early access to the new Falcon compiler, at least to undestand it and to have to opportunity
to think about what we will have to do after the donation for the MXML and HTML/JS part, and
to help the project momentum by not waiting to 2013 to start working on it.

Thibault was really interested about this feedback, and quite open to discuss what could possibly
be done before the full donation in order to help us move the projects forward.
I'm not a compiler guy at all so I used what I remembered from the discussions on this list
for my different ideas (from the best one for us to the easiest for Adobe):

- Early access to the source code in a Adobe Flex SDK way (see it but don't touch it ;)  
- Release of alpha/beta version of the compiler to start working with it
- Disclosure of the API/compiler mecanism
- Early documentation about how the compiler works

I will see Thibault again at between 6.30PM and 8.30PM GMT + 1 (Paris), so if compiler guys
(Michael, David, etc.) would chime in and have some ideas/precisions, I'd gladly forward them.
