Apache FlexJS 0.5.0 and Apache Flex FalconJX 0.5.0 Released

The Apache Flex community is pleased to announce the release of Apache
FlexJS SDK 0.5.0 and Apache Flex FalconJX Compiler 0.5.0.

Apache Flex is a highly productive, open source application framework for
building and maintaining expressive applications that deploy consistently
on all major browsers, desktops and devices (including smartphones,
tablets and tv).

Apache FlexJS is a next-generation Flex SDK that enables developers to use
MXML and ActionScript to not only create SWFs but also cross-compile the
same MXML and ActionScript to HTML/JS/CSS so applications can run natively
in browsers. The cross-compiled code can also be used in Apache Cordova
(Adobe PhoneGap) mobile applications.

Apache Flex FalconJX is a next-generation MXML and ActionScript
cross-compiler. It extends the next-generation SWF compiler known as
Falcon. Both are contained in the release package and are used by the
FlexJS package to compile SWFs or cross-compile to HTML/JS/CSS.

This is the third release of FlexJS and FalconJX. It is ‘beta'
quality. This release includes some new components, updated integration
with Apache Cordova, a few effect classes, drag and drop support, and an
example that is a port of the old Flex ‘FlexStore' example.

The purpose of this release is to gather feedback about the
features and implementation strategies, and recruit new contributors as we
grow these code bases into an SDK and tool chain that delivers the highest
productivity developing applications that can run in the most places.
These releases may not handle production needs. Expect lots of bugs and
missing features. Please file bugs at:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX

For questions about how to use FlexJS and FalconJX, send email to
users@flex.apache.org. Please try to prefix the subject with [FlexJS] or
[FalconJX] so it is clear the questions refer to this release and not the
Flex SDK and MXMLC compiler.

For questions and feedback on the development of the source code in these
release, send email to dev@flex.apache.org. Again, please prefix the
subject with [FlexJS] or [FalconJX].

Apache FlexJS and Apache Flex FalconJX are available in source and binary
form from the following download page:
http://flex.apache.org/download-flexjs.html

When downloading from a mirror site, please remember to verify the
downloads using signatures or MD5 hashes.

A simple way to try these releases is to use the
InstallApacheFlex 3.1 or 3.2 application which is available at the
following url:
http://flex.apache.org/installer.html

Choose Apache FlexJS 0.5.0 and it will create an Adobe Flash
Builder-compatible SDK that uses the Falcon and FalconJX compilers to
generate SWFs and HTML/JS/CSS output. You can also use FDT as your IDE
for developing FlexJS applications. Some folks have been successful
using IntelliJ as well.

See the README or the FlexJS wiki for more information. The FlexJS

Building Apache Flex apps for iOS7

Apache Flex allows you to build apps that work across a lot of different platforms including Android and iOS. Recently, Apple announced [1] that "Starting February 1, new apps and app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with Xcode 5 and iOS 7 SDK." In response to this change, the Adobe AIR team fixed the AIR SDK [2] so as to be compatible with Apple's new guidelines.

Now, we have updated the Apache Flex SDK Installer to allow users to download this new version of AIR - build 4.0.0.1619 so that they can continue to build and deploy Apache Flex apps for iOS7.

Download the Apache Flex SDK Installer from here [3]. Be sure to select the AIR SDK version 4.0beta from the dropdown list:

apacheflex4.11_ios7.png

The Apache Flex SDK Installer will download all the required dependencies. Add this new SDK to your favorite IDE (Flash Builder, FDT, IntelliJ Idea, Flash Develop, etc.)

iOS apps built with Apache Flex 4.11 and AIR 4.0.0.1619 is known to be working fine from the feedback we have received. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please send an email to dev@flex.apache.org.

Thanks,
The Apache Flex team

[UPDATE] Adobe recently announced that they are changing the Adobe AIR version numbering. So, make sure you select AIR version 13.0beta going forward.
