Subject Re: Radiate
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2013 08:15:38 GMT
Hi Jude,

as you might remember I have proposed a similiar tool:
"Thermo MK2" [1] which I also discussed on this mailinglist
already [2]. For sure: Radiate has more functionality then
Thermo MK2 ... my respect !!! My hope would be that a
working group could be founded here which will build a tool
like this. And I also wished that at least one Adobe guy, who
was working on Flash Catalyst CS5.5, would be part of this
working group.

I really hope that we can build a FXG 2.0 compliant design
tool that would be capable to skin custom SkinnableComponents
with declared [SkinPart] and [SkinState] tags as shown in
the screenshots of FlashCatalyst CS5.5 and FlashBuilder 4.6 [3].
