Thibault will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think ASC2.0 for AS3 was
feature complete at the time of the fork and donation and folks are now
working on ActionScript "Next", which is why he's saying that there aren't
new donations planned.

Yes, there have been AS3 bugs found, but we will try to get many of those
merged into Falcon.
