By the way, if you're just getting started Justin Mclean has offered to show you how to download and build the SDK. Just find him in the room and say hello.

Flex is alive and kicking in London with many businesses in finance having ongoing projects (both legacy and new). Good to have fresh news from Apache Flex. Keep them coming.

It’s nice to take a vacation once in a while because this gives you physical and mental refreshment. I can still remember my unforgettable experience when I was in <a href="http://www.bantayan-island.net/">Bantayan Island</a>. The place was indescribable. The surroundings were rare, pleasant to your soul.

Why aren't there any new updates?

Where can I find information on the plans and direction of Apache Flex? I can see detailed discussions in the email archives, and I can see commits in the archives as well, but I have no idea what is being built. There are probably many like myself who have made a commitment to build projects in Flex, but at the moment do not know whether we should continue in Flex. A description of plans would help. Otherwise, we may discover too late that we are building in the wrong language.

What the hell is going on... it's already May 2012 and Flex is still incubating... not a single a release from the Flex Apache group, is this a joke?

The lack of communication does not mean there is no activity. After all, Apache Flex does not have a PR and marketing team. You can checkout the project in SVN and do a Show History. You will see they are working on it: https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/flex/trunk
