Tons. Check the release notes. Soon they'll be Spark Alert's etc too.

At the mo., it's a case of 'build your self', you can't use the 
installer, because it's AIR, and AIR is DOA on Linux.

And self build is a pain. You still need an updated AIR SDK to build it 
all, and they don't exist for Linux.
I removed the build targets that required it and the result seems to 
play well in FDT, but not really pushed it yet.
And I know I'm missing thinks like the mobile skin SWCs, but that's not 
important to me.

I don't see why the Apache team couldn't do the above (correctly !), tar 
it up, and put it the other side of a page that said 'I agree to this 
long list of licences'. This would be so much easier.
