Thank you for using Apache Flex,
The Apache Flex Community
On 12/19/2012 the Apache Software Foundation Board has voted this project in as a TLP (Top-Level Project). We will now be known as the Apache Flex project. More updates to come!
As you may recall, Flex was donated to the Apache Software Foundation at the end of 2011. According to Apache rules, we had to spend some time in “incubation” to ensure that an active community could carry Flex forward independent from Adobe, and learn the “Apache way” of making release, building community and resolving conflict.
I am pleased to announce that in a recent Apache board meeting, they approved a resolution to “graduate” Apache Flex and make it a full-fledged top-level project at Apache!
The Apache Flex URLs will be changing as part of the graduation process, but for now you can find us via this handy-dandy redirect: http://www.adobe.com/go/apacheflex
