Subject Re: Status of Flex Charts?
Date Sun, 20 May 2012 11:14:23 GMT
Greetings!

Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question - but what's the status of Apache
Flex now?

When do y'all think we can see some new and improved Flex Charts with those
much needed fixes<http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-flex-dev/201201.mbox/%3CCAOOO88B-o17Z3QHshCPtwkqmSrJGvEZhmUTV_7mEzOJgCd7NDw@mail.gmail.com%3E>?
For i.e. the simplest Flex Bar Chart possible<https://gist.github.com/1623628>,
the simplest Flex Area Chart possible <https://gist.github.com/1623625> and the
simplest Flex Pie Chart possible <https://gist.github.com/1623621>?

I can't think of a more professional way to display important financial
data!
