Subject: Making an new Apache Flex release


Develop and trunk are drifting further apart and we have a fair number of bug fixes, support
for newer version of AIR and FP, some new experimental components, so probably about time
we started thinking about a release. The longer we leave it the harder it will be to make
a release. So who can help me out here?

There a few things that need to be fixed up before we can make a release. Can anyone put up
their hand to try and fix these?
- Get Jenkin/CI back up and working with Git - not essential but give up some confidence that
things are still working.
- Fix build issues re TLF and move to Git
- Look into issue with list selection tesst failing (selection colour difference in bitmaps)
- Fix a few missing headers (dead simple!)
- Does anyone know what state the components in the experimental project are? I have no idea
if any of these are in a releasable state or not.
- Make sure all mustella test run on OS, windows and mobile (now that mobile tests work) with
flash player 11.1 and 11.7 and AIR 3.7
- What state are the mustella AIR tests in?
- Add linux as an officially supported platform for this release. 

Is there anything else we would like to see in a release?

Do we have any committers or non committers with Linux experience who would like to see this
happen? There's is probably only a small amount of work required to officially supporting

There are also a number of critical and major JIRA issues that have been raised over the last
few months (including some of the issues above) that it would be nice to try and fix before
a release.

Here's the blocker and critical ones (12 issues):

And those plus major ones (158 issues):

Is any existing committer or non committer willing to help out and try and fix one or two
of the above bugs? Almost all of this issues are unassigned.
