Flex 4.12 Release, and new installer around the corner…

Congrats to the Apache Flex Team, today they release Flex 4.12. Apache Flex 4.12.0 is a update to Apache Flex 4.11.0 that adds support for the latest Flash Player and AIR runtimes, improved memory and performance, improved mobile skins and iOS7 support and over 80 bug fixes.They also have some big improvements coming soon to their SDK installer. Version 3.0, which will be release in the next couple of weeks, will include two major enhancements.

First off, the new installer will pretty much be a Air GUI that wraps a Ant scripts. The important enhancement this entails is for Linux users, we can know use the SDK installer to quickly grab the latest and great SDKs and get them running.

Secondly, the new installer will also include the ability to quickly install FlexJS. FlexJS is a port of Flex that allows Flex apps to compile to JavaScript and run without the Flash run time. The Apache team is leveraging every diversification they can. And future proofing Flex.

Exciting stuff, congrats guys
