 ###Apache Flex Work:
-- The Apache Flex team is currently testing a release candidate for Apache Flex 4.8.0.  Apache
Flex 4.8.0 will be a "parity" release with Adobe Flex 4.6.0.  We are essentially testing our
processes to make sure we can produce a build that allows you to continue to use all the cool
features of the Flex Framework, under the new Apache license.  Future builds will implement
bug fixes, new features and new components.  [Check out the README on our SVN][2] to see how
to grab this new testing build yourself.
-- 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.
+New components have been added to a new namespace, including :
+- PostCode Validator
+- PostCode Formatter
+- ArrayList
+- VectorCollection
+- The ApacheFlex Installer has made significant progress, and has been donated to Apache.
 It will be posted to the website as soon as it is out of ‘beta’.
+- A lot of Mustella tests have been committed.  More about this coming soon.
+- Two new committers have been added to the team.  Welcome Om and Peter to the project!
+###Adobe Notes:
+- Falcon, Adobe’s new compiler is undergoing the legal audit necessary for it to be
donated to Apache.  This is a huge step forward and will give us a next generation compiler.
+- Adobe is continuing to donate additional tests as they get their legal clearing.
+- Expect to see Adobe start to work on legal clearance on Flex 3.6.0.  This will make many
enterprises happy since quite a few never invested the time or effort into the 4.x model.
-- 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.
-- Issue attachments to include SDK, DMV, and Automation bugs up until about January 30, 2012.
-- 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.
-- 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
-###Community Work:
-- 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. [Check it out here][3]
-- FlexUnit is in the [process of being donated to Apache][4] (Thanks Michael Labriola!)
-- Justin Mclean has updated an [excellent presentation][5] on the Apache Flex history and
path to how we got here.
-- [360|MIN][6] 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.
