Subject Re: jira task to decide on Apache Flex version number needed
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2012 20:35:17 GMT
Yeah,  i just caught the task entry.  Sorry I just joined today.  IF
Adobe plan on continuing with their version numbers, then we should be
mindful of that.  Having "Adobe Flex SDK 4.6.1" and "Apache Flex
4.6.1" would confuse developers.

I still think that version numbers like major.minor.minor.build are
more useful than the "date stamp" method (2012.1) because i think a
version number should only be for versioning and not reference dates
as people could get confused with "what that when it was released?"
etc.

what we are doing here in all likelihood is _not_ going to be a drop-in replacement for Flex
4.6.
