+Apache Flex 4.8.0
+=================
+
+This is a parity release with Adobe Flex 4.6.0.
+
+The official Apache distribution is the source kit which can contain only source.
+Because of this, and various licensing constraints, there must be a few differences.  
+
+====> Please see the README, especially the "Install Prerequisites" section. <====
+  
+  Differences:
+  
+  - BlazeDS integration is an optional feature (Adobe license)
+  - Adobe embedded font support is an optional feature  
+
+  - the lib directory has been restructured
+        -- lib  (jars built from source)
+           -- external (other Apache jars or ones with compatible licenses)
+              -- optional (optional jars with incompatible licenses)
+
+  - the default linkage is -static-link-runtime-shared-libraries=true
+
+  - there no longer Adobe signed RSLs (swz files) in frameworks/rsls
+  - the frameworks/rsls directory contains unsigned RSL for libraries we build
+    
+  - the frameworks/osmf src is not included which means there is not an osmf RSL.  
+
+  - the frameworks/textLayout src is not included which means there is not a textLayout 
+    RSL.  We expect this difference to be limited to this release.
+  
+  - the ASDoc in the asdoc package no longer has active links for Adobe Flash,
+    Adobe Air, the Open Source Media Framework (OSMF) or Text Layout Format (TLF).
+    We hope to correct this in a future release.
+
+Please report new issues to our bugbase at:
