Subject AW: Flex 5

Well at least with Apache you're not threatened with a law-suite as thanks for creating a patch
to make ILog work with Flex4 ;-) (Was a few years ago).
Was definitely the last time I payed for anything from big old blue ... and it's certainly
allways my reason I give the guys for declining any offers to work for them ;-)

Sorry ... just has to mention this ;-)

Betreff: Flex 5 

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.
