Subject Re: Mustella Update
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2012 13:37:11 GMT

I have just committed the changes to allow spaces in directory paths for
Mustella testing. These changes allow you to:

- Have a directory path to Mustella that contains spaces, such as
/Users/pent/apache with spaces/flex/mustella/
- Set FLEX_HOME to be a path with spaces such as /Applications/Adobe Flash
Builder 4.6/sdks/apache flex/

Please let us know if you run into any issues with these changes. I will
be updating the Mustella wiki with this information shortly.
