Subject Re: [LAST CALL] Release FlexJS/FalconJX 0.5.0
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2015 17:23:03 GMT
OK, I pushed new packages that deal with most of these issues (comments
in-line).  I’m still waiting to hear what others think we should do about
headers for the generated files (see ‘Headers in Generated JS files'
thread).  And I’d like to replace the map image in FlexJSStore so I’m
looking for an AL-friendly US map.  I’d use the map coordinates in the
USStatesMap example if it has the right licensing.

I have removed swfobject from the check list.  I think we decided to keep
the main package in the check list.  At least, that’s the way the Apache
Flex SDK 4.14.1 works.

Not sure what you saw but I didn’t see anything.  We are calling the cross
compiler FalconJX (not FalconJS).

Made changes for these three although volunteers are welcome to beef up
the release notes.

Yes.  These come from Google.

Made changes for these.

That was supposed to be Flat/src/defaults.css.  There isn’t an MIT header
because it is mostly Apache Flex css with some css copied from flat-free
and some that mimics what flat-free does due to implementation differences
in our code.

Don’t know.  This comes from Google.  Feel free to ask them.

This came from Adobe.  I plan to replace it, but it is still in the
current nightly.

I’ll replace the logo tonight unless someone beats me to it.

I made changes to -app.xml files, but didn’t see any build.xml files with
copyrights in it.

As mentioned above, waiting to hear what others want to do about this.

Made changes to pick these up.

Thanks again for digging through this stuff.
