 Flex SDK into incubation. Apache Flex is now a community project managed by 
 Apache (ASF).</p>

-<p>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 release.</p>
+<p>Trademark issues have been largely cleared up.  The Flex trademark is just waiting
on some procedural dance to happen before all the trademark issues have been resolved.</p>
-<p>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.</p>
+<p>Our bug-tracking / issue-tracking system (JIRA) now has all of issues from the Adobe
bug tracker.  This will allow us to continue to work on any issues you may have reported to
Adobe as of January 30th, 2012.</p>
-<p>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”
+<p>Issue attachments to include SDK, DMV, and Automation bugs up until about January
30, 2012.</p>
-<p>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.</p>
+<p>The Mustella test suite has been donated and a few tests have been written (check-in
tests as well as a few component tests).  More tests are forthcoming but we now have the ability
to do some limited testing for bad code.  Adobe has been running our trunk code against their
tests (including those that they cannot legally donate) and has been reporting the results
to us.</p>
-<p>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.</p>
+<p>For those of you that wish to compile the compiler, framework code, etc., the ANT-based
compiles have re-engineered to make it extremely easy for you to get started.  Check out the
README file and the related file for the information required to get
+<h3 id="community-work">Community Work:</h3>
-<p>Pre-compiled builds have been created <a href="">and
posted</a>.  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. </p>
+<p>A group of contributors are working to make it easy to download and compile the
framework to be used with many of the major IDEs (including Flash Builder and IntelliJ). 
They are using an AIR/Flex application that will download all the required components for
you and set them up in the proper directory so you don’t have to track down all the required
pieces and parts. <a href="">Check
it out here</a></p>
-<p>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.</p>
+<p>FlexUnit is in the <a href="">process of being donated
to Apache</a> (Thanks Michael Labriola!)</p>
-<p>Lots of work is happening around localization and internationalization.  A bunch
of new locales have been submitted with more on the way.<br />
+<p>Justin Mclean has updated an <a href="">excellent
presentation</a> on the Apache Flex history and path to how we got here (hint see slide
#57 for a recent visual of SPOON)</p>
-<p>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).<br />
+<p><a href="">360|MIN</a>
was announced by the producers of 360|Flex (now known as 360|Stack).  It will take place in
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on October 22 – 23, during the week that Adobe MAX 2012 was supposed
to occur.  360|MIN is a barcamp-style gathering that will feature many of the contributors
from Apache Flex.<br />
-<p>Check-in tests and the button tests for Mustella are up and working. Jenkins Continuous
Integration is up and running as well.</p>
