Yeah, there are some changes that are required for it to work with AIR 3.4.
 I've got a build on my machine at home that 'works' with it, but I'm not
willing to share at the moment because I broke a bunch of other things :)

I was able to correct the issue by blowing away all copies of AIR on my
machine.  It seems there was a beta from way back when that was causing the
issue, even though I have the released 3.4 installed at the time.

Understood.  Merely wanted to point it out.

Mostly, you need to update some of the version numbers -- and I'm sure
there are some side-effects of using the new swf version too.  I haven't
done a full test suite on it yet, but this may be a job for our CI or
mustella tests.

Flash Builder 4.7 just got released to labs.

I also know the JetBrains and FDT guys are working on this support too.
 I'd imagine they are not too far behind.
