Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Flex 4.9 Release Candidate 4
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2012 16:35:30 GMT
-1  The SDK is almost there but now that the README mentions the installer
I will vote -1 until the installer is ready to go out at the same time.

I built the src kit and I built frameworks in the binary kit.  I built FB
SDKs with both directories using
ide/flashbuilder/ and tested both in Flash
Builder 4.7 with mini AIR and FP apps.  All checked out fine.

1. The README needs more work.

- The AIR download URL was edited to be 3.4 but this was added which is

        This version of Apache Flex was certified for use with AIR 3.1,
and is compatible
        with versions 3.1 through 3.5.

- Once fixed, we are saying we certified with FP11.1 and AIR 3.4 and we're
compatible with other versions.  Is that what we decided we want to say?

- We need to be more specific about how you use different versions of
FlashPlayer and AIR.  If I was reading the README I'd want to know what
that really means. What does it mean if I have a source kit?  What does it
mean if I have a binary kit? Do I need to rebuild to use another version
and if so how do I do that?

- Same as above for non-en_US locales for both types of kit.  The README
should include some information for the source kit, on how to build those
locales, and how to set the locale.  The binary kit includes all the
locales.  ant main does not build anything other than the default locale
(I assume that works if the default isn't en_US but I've never tried it

2.  I removed the exec of the svn command line app from the batik build
file.  I fixed the manifest for batik-all-flex.jar.
