Subject ActionScript and Apache Flex
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2012 09:21:32 GMT
How does the evolution of ActionScript relate to Apache Flex? If the
ActionScript standard would change - and the language would be
extended or modified - who would be making that decision? Is there an
"official standard" of the language available to the public, and what
are Adobe's plans for ActionScript?

Adobe has a trademark on ActionScript. The Mozilla Tamarin page says:
"ActionScriptâ„¢ is the name used for Adobe's implementation of the
language specification.Adobe is in the process of developing a
licensing program that will allow developers, whose code passes a
designated test suite, to say that their application or implementation
is ActionScript-compliant.

I know that the Tamarin project has not been continued, but is the
information on this page regarding ActionScript still valid?
If that is still valid, it means that an open source implementation of
an ActionScript would have to be licensed by Adobe to be compliant.
ActionScript itself doesn't seem to have a license attached to it (I
could not find any information), but maybe the information is hidden

It would be good to have some clarification on the status of
ActionScript, the trademark, the licensing of an open source
implementation, etc.
