Subject Flex 5
Date Sat, 17 Nov 2012 17:58:04 GMT
I love Flex.  And I don't see changing anytime soon.  

FWIW, I would be surprised if Adobe and/or others are not hard at work
creating the 'Next Flex' that targets JS HTML5 or multiple targets.  It
would certainly fit with Edge/Muse/Brackets...maybe Adobe Sencha?

I say this gently, as one who has not submitted any code myself:  

In the short run, like the next year or so...Apache Flex 5 maybe, it would
be great to have the following worked on/created:

Additional Spark components
Ilog like components (especially a Gantt Chart component)

I would gladly support those with money (I don't have much money, but I have
more money than coding/compiler experience).  I wouldn't even mind if the
above came with a price tag (I paid $800  for Ilog components).

As to the future of Flex, post Flash player, it would seem a more fruitful
discussion, if folks like me (who aren't committing code and therefore,
likely to be of little use on the next step...the big re-write), expressed
their opinions gently, and follow the lead of those likely to do the bulk of
the work (or not).

And they may well do just that, I obviously have no control over that.  I am
just taking at face value what they say their current strategy is and adding
to that my reading of the browser/mobile landscape, the future of browser
plugins, etc, and adding all that up my conclusion is that the current Flex
deployment scenario is viable for many more years.
