Congratulations to Apache Flex!

Please join me in welcoming Apache Flex as a top level Apache Software Foundation project with Alex Harui from Adobe as VP! Congratulations, all – what a wonderful way to close out the year :D

The current release build of Apache Flex is 4.8 – a parity release with Adobe Flex 4.6. However, Apache Flex 4.9 is in release candidate status and could be finalized at any time – the release notes can be found here.

The simplest way of getting a hold of the latest Apache Flex build is to grab it using the awesome installer utility. The best way of grabbing the installer is via the badge, as seen below… GRAB IT!

  1. I think this is fantastic news. I’m hopeful that it will revitalize interest in the platform and that we’ll see a snowball effect as ‘old’ developers come back and new developers sign on. This technology is simply too good (and far better than our current alternatives for RIA) to sit on the sidelines.

  2. I agree, Flex is lightyears ahead in many regards…so simple yet powerful….I am always so impressed with Flex.

  3. I hope they tweak the performace a little bit. Also I would like to see some framework modules you can switch if it needs to be. But it is a nice framework at all. GOOOO APACHE!!!!
