Subject Re: Greate News! Flex 4.10 with AIR 3.8 running very smooth on iOS and Mac OS when "renderMode" set to "direct"
Date Thu, 22 Aug 2013 06:09:48 GMT
Thanks a lot for the notes and good to know that!

 I did try the direct renderMode on my retina Macbook and feel the performance improvement!

And I was wondering if there are some good performance test tools to make this improvement
more qualified? because what I do now is just resizing the app window to see if it renders
the diplay object faster and smoother.

Again, thanks a lot for the NEWS!

the reason why Adobe didn't mention this is because they always have the lousy PR (Public
Relations), which hide the good news and spread the bad news, they should fire their PR managers

as well.

smooth on iPhone &amp; iPad &amp; Mac &amp; PC.

in the -app.xml file, this will boost performance on iOS and Mac OS, so everybody just keep
