Subject Re: ASC 2.0 and Falcon

Hi Mike,

This is true, but ASC is already moving to ASNext targeting the next
generation runtime which is targeting game developers. So our resources
are assigned to that and the time we have to take ASC 2.0 changes to
Falcon, are limited. Gordon will bring key/showstopper bugs fixed in ASC
2.0 to Falcon, we cannot commit to anything more.

Just a heads up, given the architecture changes of the next-gen runtime,
Flex will not be able to run in it. I would "highly" recommend you guys
having a look at Feathers (work from Josh Tynjala - feathersui.com) on top
of Starling, which will run beautifully in our next runtime.
