Subject Re: Using source version as current Flex SDK
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 18:54:49 GMT
Thanks for the promptitude guys.

Alex, I am working from the repos indeed.

Erik, thanks for the pointer. I'm just running ant
-Dbuild.number=20141204 -Dbuild.noprompt=release, and then following
the next steps; let's see if that helps.

Om, I think I tried that a while ago and got into a lot of trouble
because those projects in the 'frameworks/projects' folder had so many
dependencies and custom compilation flags, etc. I'm glad you could get
it to run, but I'd like to make the current source a working SDK for
the IDE.
