Subject RE: About Flex runtime
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2012 19:44:45 GMT
My point was that we should be compiling against the current playerglobal.swc and testing against
the current player, not that we should be creating SWFs that require the current player to
run. Otherwise you run the risk that you create SWFs that don't actually run on the current
player (although Adobe tries to ensure compatibility).

I dont think we have implemented any feature that depends on 11.1+ flash players.  What is
the point of bumping up the requirement?  Unnecessarily bumping up flash player version requirements
will cause a lot of developers to not upgrade their Flex SDK versions.  I have seen this first
hand.

Of course, this does not prevent folks from running their Flex apps using the latest flash
players.  In enterprise world, such upgrades are done infrequently; we need to we very careful
when we bump up the flash player version requirement.

Thanks,
Om
