+##Below is an archive of the Apache Flex News Items:
+###June 2012:
+  - The Apache Flex Project has received the entire Flex Framework.  This includes all components
that were completed in Adobe’s 4.6.0 release and a few others.  Essentially if you take
the existing compiler to the frameworks code, you would get what amounts to the current Adobe
+  - The automation framework that was a part of the Adobe Flex 4.6.0 framework is close to
being donated, but has not been signed off yet.  We expect this in the coming weeks.
+  - The Apache Flex Project has received the “mxmlc Flex Compiler”.  This means
we can now make changes to the existing compiler that shipped with Adobe’s 4.6.0.  This
will allow us to make bug-fixes and small optimizations while we wait for the new “Falcon”
+  - The testing framework that Adobe used known as Mustela has been donated.  This will allow
us to make changes to the compiler and framework while still maintaining compatibility with
the previous versions.  There are a series of tests that still need to be written, but at
least the framework is there.
+  - The Apache Flex team has created a set of build scripts so that anybody can easily build
their own copy of the framework.  Apache ANT scripts will be officially supported, but other
developers have offered to make build scripts for Maven.
+  - Pre-compiled builds have been created [and posted][2].  They are not the 'official' 4.8.0
version yet, but they are getting close.  You can download them and put them in your Flash
Builder or IntelliJ SDKs directory and see how they look with your existing projects today.
 This is a parity release to the current Adobe 4.6.0 release. 
+  - Apache committers have begun donating various components to the framework, including
an FXGImage component, some collections classes, some major work around validation, busy indicators
for non-mobile components, and some navigators.  These components have not been integrated
into the trunk (the main project), but you should expect to see some of them in the future.
+  - Lots of work is happening around localization and internationalization.  A bunch of new
locales have been submitted with more on the way.  
+  - A team has formed to build what amounts to an automated installer for Apache Flex SDK.
 This is an AIR application that will allow a user to do a single-click install of the SDK,
and integrate it into Flash Builder 4.6.0 (and possibly other IDEs).  
+  - Check-in tests and the button tests for Mustella are up and working. Jenkins Continuous
Integration is up and running as well.
