Subject Preliminary release candidate of Apache Flex 4.8.0 (for developers only)
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 18:38:19 GMT
Apache Flex 4.8.0 is intended to be a parity release of Adobe Flex 4.6.

At you will find

and the associated md5 and asc files.

***** Please read the README file at the root. *****

In order to comply with Apache rules there have been some changes to the build procedure.
In particular note the list of environment variables which must be set in order
to build the source.

We expect there to be several more release candidates before we get to the final
release candidate.

The known issues are:
    - missing automation libraries, fabridge, flash-integration and samples
    - missing embedded font support (unless font compiled into swf with fontswf
        obtained elsewhere)
    - required Apache files including NOTICE and LICENSE are incomplete
    - Flash Builder project files need to be updated again (will be done shortly)
    - may need to add explicit prompts when downloading certain thirdparty resources
    - build number is always 0

How to Report Issues

If there are problems with the packaging such as missing files, please reply on this list.

If there are bugs that were not present in Adobe Flex 4.6 please enter a JIRA bug and
note the regression.
