In case you haven’t heard the news yet, the Apache Flex team just delivered their first release, Apache Flex 4.8.0! Though it’s just a parity release (no new features yet), this is a major milestone for the team and validates the strength of the community and the dedicated Adobe folks coming together and proving they can deliver. This release will also help Apache Flex in it’s journey to becoming a full-fledged open source Apache project out of incubation. And more importantly, shows that Flex is still alive and kickin ! I can also vouch for this just based on my continuous blog traffic and visitors to all of my Flex posts. I downloaded the latest and was able to use it within minutes. I encourage you to get it installed, participate in the mailing lists and please contribute in any way you can to help this project continue on its path to success!
