Subject Re:Re: Greate News! Flex 4.10 with AIR 3.8 running very smooth on iOS and Mac OS when "renderMode" set to "direct"

Hi Ram,

The major performance improvement is done by AIR 3.8 (not earlier AIR versions), and 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 immediately.

At the same time, Flex 4.10 fixed a lot of bugs, which improves the framework perfomance as

So with Flex 4.10 and AIR 3.8, you can really build mobile apps with it, and running smooth
on iPhone &amp; iPad &amp; Mac &amp; PC.

Now, we can proudly say that Flex has become the best crossplatform application development
&amp; deployment solution on earth!
