Subject RE: [ANNOUNCE] Apache FlexJS 0.5.0 and Apache Flex FalconJX 0.5.0 Released
Date Tue, 24 Nov 2015 14:05:28 GMT
I uninstalled the 3.2 installer, and downloaded/re-installed the installer.
I then was able to install the Flexjs 0.5.0 beta.

Subject: RE: [ANNOUNCE] Apache FlexJS 0.5.0 and Apache Flex FalconJX 0.5.0 Released

Using the 3.2 installer, I tried to install this 0.5.0 release yesterday, and it stops trying
to download jburg.
Nothing in the log other than the attempt at the download. Any ideas?

I used the defaults for the other two install options (player 16, Air 16).

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache FlexJS 0.5.0 and Apache Flex FalconJX 0.5.0 Released

The Apache Flex community is pleased to announce the release of Apache FlexJS SDK 0.5.0 and
Apache Flex FalconJX Compiler 0.5.0.

Apache Flex is a highly productive, open source application framework for building and maintaining
expressive applications that deploy consistently on all major browsers, desktops and devices
(including smartphones, tablets and tv).

Apache FlexJS is a next-generation Flex SDK that enables developers to use MXML and ActionScript
to not only create SWFs but also cross-compile the same MXML and ActionScript to HTML/JS/CSS
so applications can run natively in browsers.  The cross-compiled code can also be used in
Apache Cordova (Adobe PhoneGap) mobile applications.

Apache Flex FalconJX is a next-generation MXML and ActionScript cross-compiler.  It extends
the next-generation SWF compiler known as Falcon.  Both are contained in the release package
and are used by the FlexJS package to compile SWFs or cross-compile to HTML/JS/CSS.

This is the third release of FlexJS and FalconJX.  It is ‘beta'
quality.  This release includes some new components, updated integration with Apache Cordova,
a few effect classes, drag and drop support, and an example that is a port of the old Flex
‘FlexStore' example.

The purpose of this release is to gather feedback about the features and implementation strategies,
and recruit new contributors as we grow these code bases into an SDK and tool chain that delivers
the highest productivity developing applications that can run in the most places.
These releases may not handle production needs.  Expect lots of bugs and missing features.
 Please file bugs at:


For questions about how to use FlexJS and FalconJX, send email to users@flex.apache.org. 
Please try to prefix the subject with [FlexJS] or [FalconJX] so it is clear the questions
refer to this release and not the Flex SDK and MXMLC compiler.

For questions and feedback on the development of the source code in these release, send email
to dev@flex.apache.org.  Again, please prefix the subject with [FlexJS] or [FalconJX].

Apache FlexJS and Apache Flex FalconJX are available in source and binary form from the following
download page:

When downloading from a mirror site, please remember to verify the downloads using signatures
or MD5 hashes.

A simple way to try these releases is to use the InstallApacheFlex 3.1 or 3.2 application
which is available at the following url:

Choose Apache FlexJS 0.5.0 and it will create an Adobe Flash Builder-compatible SDK that uses
the Falcon and FalconJX compilers to generate SWFs and HTML/JS/CSS output.  You can also use
FDT as your IDE for developing FlexJS applications.  Some folks have been successful using
IntelliJ as well.

See the README or the FlexJS wiki for more information.  The FlexJS section of the wiki is
