Subject Re: How to prepare Apache Flex 5 to run in the new AVM in Flashplayer 12?
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 17:16:15 GMT
Wasn't the point of the above discussion (and others) that there would be
an API/bridge/whatever that would allow compilation/publication from
AS/MXML to lots of different platforms? Like Android, or to Flash Next or
JS, iOS etc.

How about if we look at this from our various
perspectives/strengths/interests and write up (on this list, in as many
threads) what would be needed (not necessarily possible) to make the above
happen? Let's be constructive and figure this out, Open Source style!
