Subject Re: jira task to decide on Apache Flex version number needed
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2012 16:59:15 GMT
Apache Flex is about to become the main distributor for the open source 
project Flex. It was before at Adobe.
As long as the current version contains only bugfixes, I'd say: 4.6.x - 
As soon as there are new features 4.7
and as soon as there are major new concepts 5.x.

But that being said: I think more important would be what is included in 
the flex release: The current flex release
contains a lot, compiler, tons of libraries, just ... a lot.

Might it be a good idea to split the versioning? According to the maven 
Then it would mean: Flex Charting Components 5.0 is when there are new 
concepts in the charting system.
That way progress could be published in faster intervals (and (unit) 
testing might be easier).
