Subject Apache Flex AIR Installer ( was RE: [OT] Introduction and some quick questions)
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2012 19:19:38 GMT
Hello Om 

I just wanted to follow up on your links to the common and installer
projects you mentioned below, when I attempt to use them in Flash Builder
(after putting together the SDK) I had some missing references to the
Zip/ZipEvent and ZipFile classes.

		import org.as3commons.zip.Zip;
		import org.as3commons.zip.ZipEvent;	
		import org.as3Commons.zip.ZipFile;


So I downloaded it from
http://www.as3commons.org/as3-commons-zip/index.html. Things seem to clear
up after that for the installer.

that he will be donating FlexUnit to Apache Flex soon.   You can see this

I haven't seen any relevant discussions on the list about this.

Apache Flex 4.8 is a parity release, i.e. it is exactly the same as Adobe
Flex 4.6.  So, there are no new features.  The user community will hopefully
proactively switch to Apache Flex 4.8 and make sure that nothing broke when
the codebase was transferred from Adobe to Apache.
