Subject Re: How to prepare Apache Flex 5 to run in the new AVM in Flashplayer 12?
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 16:59:01 GMT
I agree but just to make the discussion more interesting I'll remind you of
some very interesting thought by many guys here in the list who want to
make the framework lighter or make it run better on mobile or whatever
else. These plans go beyond bug fixing and it would be interesting (at
least to me) to know if something like that will happen or we wait to see
what the new vm looks like.

I hate making a question like this because it reminds me of all the times
the work "roadmap" has been brought up, so please don't think I'm asking
for something like that.

It's more a question of how do you guys see the project progressing beyond
bug fixing. For example Michael Schmalle stated that he's interested in
making a bridge with Android. It would be interesting to see what excites
the rest of you because I think in this kind of development (Apache way)
this is what moves things forward, working on something exciting.
