Apache Flex 4.9.0 Released!

The Apache Flex community is pleased to announce the release of Apache Flex 4.9.0!

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).

This is the first release since Apache Flex has been made a top level Apache Software Foundation project.

Apache Flex is available in source and binary form from the following download page: http://flex.apache.org/download.html

It's recommended you install Apache Flex by using the Apache Flex IDE installer.

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

For more information on Apache Flex, visit the project home page.

Thank you for using Apache Flex,
The Apache Flex Community

Hi, I downloaded the SDK Installer App from http://flex.apache.org/installer.html. But when I run it, it shows the following error message: ========================== Sorry, an error has occurred. This application cannot be installed because this installer has been mis-configured. Please contact the application author for assistance. ========================== Can anyone help? I was installing it on my Windows 7 PC. Thanks! Joel

@Joel T.: Have you used an old version of the installer? If yes, uninstall it first. I had the same issue and it helped.

@Mario: Thanks a lot!!! It works after uninstalling and re-installing! Thanks!

Hi, I developed Flex Web Application a few years already but I was worried since adobe stating to stop supporting flash player on mobile.Android 4.1. If this is the case do Apache will create a player to support flex web application or any idea on how we can continue to run flex web application on the future? Thanks; Carl

That's good news at the start of Year 2013 at least for flex developers.

Guys, I believe some of you have been using Adobe Flash Builder in design mode, which was very easy and effective. They removed it in version 4.7 and there will be no such a function in further releases. Is there any similar tool with the same functionality (or better) going to be developed that we can use in near future? Luckily, any open source project? From other hand, which software are you using for coding and design?

Please correct the red colored checkboxes in the Apache Flex 4.9 installer, they doesn't look like check boxes and developers finding it difficult make install button enabled, and i told few of ma fellow developers to check the red boxes as they thought they are buttons :) Thank You Ankur Sharma

No linux release one more time. Why?

Posted by Andre on March 19, 2013 at 03:44 PM GMT #

Both Apache Flex 4.9 and 4.9.1 do work on Linux. They are just not fully tested/officially supported yet.

I am a certified Flex developer that has not worked in it for a long while. Flex has not made it onto the IPhone or Android or IPad. Is Flex going the way of the dinosaur?

> Is Flex going the way of the dinosaur? Yes.
