Subject Time for an Apache Flex compiler.
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 10:39:28 GMT
Yesterday Adobe published their "whitepaper" on the future of Flex. In
it, they state that they'll be contributing the Falcon compiler to
Apache sometime between October and December. This compiler will support
AS3 only, with no support for MXML. So when we get the compiler (which
as already slipped from a summer - according to Alex I think - to winter
release,) we will then need to get our heads around how it works and
then add MXML support before we can use it as a replacement to the mxmlc
and compc compilers.

This is not a viable timescale for Apache Flex in my opinion. Therefore
I feel we have no choice but to ignore Falcon and to start developing
our own compiler with immediate effect. I therefore want to get an idea
as to who, if anyone, here is interested in getting involved in this
initiative?

David.
