Subject Re: TLF and Flex (was Re: [jira] [Updated] (FLEX-23) Add support for newer versions of the Text Layout Framework to build scripts)
Date Wed, 29 Feb 2012 00:47:17 GMT
I'm confused. TLF was one of the features that I thought was most important for the new enterprise
development and I'm hearing it was an addition to the sdk not flash player. My (non rhetorical)
question to the group is: what features have been added to the _player_ that we as flex developers
use?

What I am getting at is: what are we losing per se with adobe focusing on gaming? I can see
that flash in the browser has challenges ahead, but AIR doesn't seem to. No?
