Subject Re: ASC 2.0 and Falcon

Hi Mike,

Yes, we wanted to give you access to the compiler as soon as possible so
we decided to donate the final version of the compiler (aka Falcon) with
Flex (MXML) support that you guys could contribute to it and shape Falcon
the way Flex developers decide to.

ASC 2.0 purpose was gaming focused, hence why we decided to pursue the
development on our side. Given that its audience today is different we
don't want to have gaming requirements for the compiler get in the way of
requirements from Flex developers.
