Subject Re: [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC3
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 11:46:34 GMT
I wouldn't recommend that-- When we have a new version, then "we" will have
to maintain a separate list of executable files that need to be modified.

Om, on another note, I downloaded RC3 and it worked great, both from source
and from the binaries on Win7 in my environment.  Good job :)
