Subject RE: [POLL] - Must Flex 5 be a complete rewrite or can flex code base be re-architecture?
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2012 14:26:32 GMT
To be clear, would the intention here to be a limited subset for
multi-platform, with everything maintained for swf legacy?
Perhaps dumping mx and keeping spark, or some subtler equiv?  Or to have mx
as an additional module only available on swf?

I would say it's possible given how it's compiled.  So having a robust
compiler or different compilers for different target environments could be
possible.

"Having more deployed targets based on what we have currently"
But is it possible? thats the question...

Could we start a new namespace that we could use to build up a partial new
framework for a future transition to?  It just feels like rewriting
everything from scratch would take a long time and would basically be a
separate project.
