Subject Re: Flex 3.x SDK?
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2012 21:06:17 GMT
I want to stress this point. If the 3.x SDK does not make it in to Apache
Flex, then all current code written in 3.x immediately becomes legacy code
with no obvious path forward. Once that happens, it becomes much harder to
argue in favor of giving Apache Flex a chance instead of just switching now
to html/js/etc, because the risks of rewriting an app in one or the other
is perceived to be equal.
