Subject Re: How to prepare Apache Flex 5 to run in the new AVM in Flashplayer 12?
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 14:42:46 GMT
I think that in the end a total rewrite should be done and better to do it
directly in AS4. As I said some weeks ago my wishes for this project would
be to get:

* SWF and HTML/JS output. (this will make traction since people going to
HTML/JS are suffering the lack of OOP).
* For SWF, build on top of Stage3D / Workers.

Start Flex from scratch would bring all things that are make flex a killer
platform and remove all deprecated and legacy coming from Flash MX days.
This should simplify Flex comparing with what we have today.
