I'll leave this to Thibault to answer. I think that so far we have disclosed details of AS4
to only a limited number of developers who are under a non-disclosure agreement.

Alex, Gordon,

when we could get more info about AS4? I think this new version of the language and the new
version of the AVM implies lots of things and I think the community needs clear unknowns sooner.

For me a new AVM and language is the place where I would like to see lots of things that for
me are the next evolution of what we have now in terms of platform and language coding. Things
that apply to Flash as a platform for gamming but that could be leveraged by Flex as well
in a possible new rewrite to support this new evolution.

I'm talking about  Generics, Metadata evolution, Enum, support for better dependency injection
and AOP, to expose only a few... things that developers (in whatever discipline that you would
think: gamming, app dev, ...) are demanding.

Hope we could have access to what is coming sooner to see what Adobe is preparing and their
vision of how the platform must evolve in the next years.

Thanks

Carlos
